Right. And while it sounds strange in English (because Maldives sounds like the plural of Maldive Islands), Maldivians always refer - in English - to their own country simply as Maldives.

It's asking for the short names. I'm pretty sure every country in Asia is made up on two or more words if you look at the full name.

Short names do not have "the republic of...". That is a country's long name. That is also why "North Korea" is the correct answer and not "People's Democratic Republic of Korea". This quiz is missing Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, however.

So, Papua New Guinea is considered Oceania, but East Timor is considered Asia. Look at map and please reconsider.

Oceania is comprised by all the island-countries that are touched by the Central and South Pacific Ocean (plus Australia).
PNG is touched by the Pacific Ocean, whereas East Timor isn't (Timor Sea is part of the Indian Ocean). Therefore, PNG is in Oceania, East Timor is in Asia.
