Buddhism is the name of the religion, while Buddhist is the name of the adherent.

But 'Buddhist' is also an adjective describing things of or related to Buddhism, e.g. a Buddhist monk, a Buddhist statue. Because of that, when asked which religion is the appropriate answer, one might correctly say 'the Buddhist religion'. Buddhism is a better answer, and clearly what was intended, but I wouldn't say that Buddhist is wrong.

The Cologne Cathedral or the Columbus monument could also have qualified for "Col". But the accepted answers are clearly the most obvious ones.

Tasmania is a state, not a region. That difference would be clear if it were an American state.

After I spent several long moments trying to think of a religion that started with TAS, I went back and re-read the category. Hmmm...it may be time for glasses.

I thought it was spelled 'Catalunya'? And Tasmania is not a region, it is a state and an island.

To all complaining about the term region not being a state...how is that even a logical thought. From Wikipedia (yes I know it's not perfect but this definition is pretty darn good): In geography, regions are areas that are broadly divided by physical characteristics, human impact characteristics, and the interaction of humanity and the environment. Considering different countries use different terms for their subdivisions (states, provinces, counties, countries, parishes, etc.) Region seems to be the most logical choice of term.

I thought 3 of those said Religion rather than Region so I was going crazy saying "why isn't Catholicism working??!" haha

Big Ben is not really a landmark. Big Ben is the name of the bell inside Elizabeth Tower part of the Palace of Westminster.
