Guessed Mongolia on a whim when all my other guesses proved futile. Never realized it extended that far east.

Icould of sworn malaysia was further east than mongolia and thought this looked wrong, and checking wikipedia malaysia goes further east than 104 degree found out from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_extreme_points_of_Malaysia East Near Kampong Look Sembuang in Lahad Datu Sabah Sulu Sea 5°14′27″N 119°16′00″E so while i was further east than monglia, it is furhter east than the 104 degrees It is suprisingly close between the 2!

And I thought I made it clear by saying "on Borneo". Peninsular Malaysia is about 104. As GK says, Mongolia & Malaysia both 119.something, with Mongolia just shading it

@quizzer6794 No it is not, it stretches a whole 15 degrees further east, you overlooked quite a bit of the country (like half of it). But still, mongolia stretches even a little bit further (about 2/3 of a degree). So malaysia is not on the list, but it is extremely close. (about 70-75 km)

I wish these quizzes would all be on the same page. In many of them, Russia is considered in Europe. It should be in one or the other.

Obviously it's in both. If we are forced to choose one, we choose Europe because that's where the majority of the population lives. However on quizzes like this we are not forced to choose one. This policy is consistent on all our featured quizzes.

Malaysia DEFINITELY goes further than 104 degrees. And it is close but mongolia strethches further east just a tiny bit. Both 119 degrees east but Mongolia is about 119 55' And malaysia is 119 16'
