I feel stupid for not getting the Celebes sea one. I still call the island Celebes in my mind!

A similar question was on Jeopardy™ last night, except that they were asking about the island, not the sea. The poor guy guessed "Greece."

19/20, only missed Gulf of Guinea! I literally tried out every single country in that region: Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast ... just not Nigeria. Sigh.

I'm pretty sure Italy's coast on Mediterranean Sea is much bigger than Algeria.

Its not by size of coast, it is size of the country.

"Name the country with the largest area that touches each of these bodies of water" There is no comma after area, so it is largest area touching the water, not largest country. Besides, otherwise they would have simply said biggest country, not country with the largest area..

edit apparently they do mean largest country... despite the description.

I would rethink the description, see my comment above and other comments below

The description should make it more clear that it's the country that is largest by area that touches the body of water, not the country that has the largest area (aka coastline in this case) that touches the body of water.

I was completely flabbergasted when I typed "Russia" for the Baltic Sea question and see it turn green. Was my last guess after Sweden, Finland, Poland and the Baltic states.

In other words: I agree.

How do we get Russia for Baltic Sea? Russia would be correct for the Barents Sea, but Sweden should be the right answer for Baltic, no?

They have the bigger Baltic Coast but they aren't the biggest countries on the Baltic Sea. Russia is by far larger in area than Sweden and Finland combined.

That's not the point. It is the size of the country that touches that body of water.

Guys, come on. The quiz was taken 17 thousand times and literally tens of you have an issue understanding the principle. You are looking for the largest contry, not the longest coastline. End of story.
