Agreed! I found out about quite a few rivers I never knew. And for the Nile to not be here at all is just amazing

The only reason I got Irrawaddy is because I read about the Irrawaddy Dolphin, an endangered species, lived in that river. At the last minute of the quiz I was taking wild guesses.

2,830 cubic meters per second. I've always heard that the Amazon had the largest discharge but the magnitude is astounding. I had no idea it was that much bigger than the Nile

I'm amazed that the Nile isn't on here. I checked wikipedia, and it's not even close! Same for some other rivers, like the Yellow River, which I would've been willing to bet money were safely on here.

It's all about the rainfall in the river's basin. Much of the Nile's basin is desert, while nearly all of the Amazon's is rain forest.

Why "not including tributaries"? It's the discharge at their mouth. 5/5

I'm not sure I understand your question. Including tributaries wouldn't make sense as they don't discharge any water into the sea, only into another river.

I'm with marathon - the discharge from the tributaries will ultimately end up at the river mouth and be included ... and since it says "discharging into the sea", i.e. not a main river, there's no need to even mention tributaries?

Added some more spellings, but typing any of the following would have worked "River Plate", "Plate", "Rio de la Plata", "Rio Plata", or "Plata". Combining English and Spanish didn't work though.

Why Plate? The word in Spanish is Plata and it means Silver, not Plate.
