In case anyone is wondering... The European part of Russia is enough to make Russia #1 for Europe. The Asian part of Russia is enough to make Russia #1 for Asia.

I like that approach, though to be consistent, in Five Most Populated Cities by Continent the European part of Istanbul would not have the highest population in Europe.

I was about to call shenanigans on Mongolia not being in the list, but it turns out it's only 3/4 the size of Saudi. I blame the Mercator projection.

I remember when I was younger and realized this, I had always thought that Mongolia would be about 1,5-2 times bigger than S-A. It blew my mind, I had trouble accepting it and I still have trouble picturing in my mind a map where S-A is bigger than Mongolia. The same (but less mind blowing) happened when I realized Algeria is bigger than DRC.. At the time of both of these I was in my late teens, and had been a seriously dedicated geography buff since like 4 years old, so what really blew my mind was the fact that these realizations blew my mind.... They should not have, and I can't blame Mercator, since I had a lit up globe on my night table.

This is kind of nitpicking but in land area the USA is larger than Canada, while in total area (land + water) it's not. It only changes the order, the answers remain the same. The quiz is good either way!

The size of the USA nearly always includes it's waters, even though it shouldn't. Therefore, unless the source for the size does not include this, the waters of Canada should be counted.

Greenland ranks 2nd if you count it as European or 3rd if you count it as North American. If think "Greenland ain't a country, it's a part of Denmark", then the 2nd largest European country is Denmark!

Russia no longer shows up under Europe so all the other answers after that position have moved up one place. This leaves many errors like Brazil being listed under Oceania.

Russia is not proportionately populated between the smaller western portion (almost 25%) of the country that is considered part of Europe, and the larger eastern portion (more than 75%) that is part of Asia. European Russia contains about 77% of the country's population (110,000,000 people out of about 144,000,000)

ben you are missing the point. One country can touch another country and be on the same land mass and each of those countries can still be considered to be in different continents. Continental boundaries are somewhat arbitrarily chosen and not always unanimously agreed upon. In the same way that the Sinai (Egypt) is often considered part of Asia, New Guinea (divided between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea) is often considered part of Oceania. But Egypt is typically represented as being wholly African and Indonesia as being Asian. New Guinea isn't a special case.

Got full marks but surely Mongolia should be on Asia. I'm sure Mongolia is bigger than Kazakhstan? Also, is this based on territory or land size as if the Solomon Islands is on Oceania, surely Kiribati should be too?

It's based on land size. Mongolia is in Asia, it's just not big enough to be in the top five (it is not as big as Kazakhstan, as anyone can check by doing a search online, or is that too obvious?). Kiribati's land size is small - it's made up a lots of tiny islands that, when added together, still don't come to a great deal.
