Well Russia is divided between Europe and Asia and the Asian part begins at the Ural mountains if I'm not mistaken, which are north west of Kazakhstan. The dividing line actually passes through the western part of Kzakhstan over the Caspian Sea, which makes Russia too far east for this quiz.

I also tried Russia since the180th meridian runs through it on the tip near Alaska (Chukchi Peninsula). I know it's just a technicality, but one step to the east over the 180th would land you in the westernmost location in Asia.

If Turkey and Georgia are included, both of which are across two continents, the.n surely Russia and Egypt should be also

Both countries are generally counted to Asia. I guess that was the intention of the quizmaster. Russia is always an expection, however the asian part of Russia is far more in the east so Russia should not be on the list.

Actually, the russian part of Asia is by far the westernmost part of the continent since the easternmost point is 169°40'W

There is a border between Asia and Europe through the Caucus Mountains which includes Georgia, Russia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. Physical regions are commonly use to separate continents. Example: Panama Canal separating the Americas and the Ural mountains separating Asia and Europe. So when the borders of the continents were chosen, they made a border through the middle of the Caucus Mountains and Georgia, Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan just happened to be there.

If the name of this quiz is "10 Westernmost Countries in Asia" Egypt should make this list. You should change the name of the quiz to "10 Westernmost Asian Countries"

It's closer to Asia than to Europe, but I agree that it shouldn't be in this list. It's definitely not "within the continent of Asia."

i doesnt matter if you care or not. cyprus is politically part of europe but georgraphically it is part of asia. no matter what body you are member with or no mother what Cypriots think that they are European, it dosnt move the "Island of Cyprus" to Europe.

I don't get why Egypt isn't included. The Sinai Peninsula is usually considered part of Asia, and it's further west than many of the other countries on this list.
