Tungsten does not come from an element; it is an element. Wolfram is the word used for tungsten in most European languages deriving from the mineral, wolframite. Also, the question about the Mediterranean island of France is a bit vague, as France has many islands in the Mediterranean. Perhaps, ask for France's largest island in the Mediterranean. Otherwise, the quiz was enjoyable with a good variety of questions!!
