Accept Buddhist as well as Buddhism?

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.

True, but there is a big difference between an Adjective and a Noun. You wouldn't accept Canadian for Canada or Muslim for Islam.

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.

Likewise: Tastafarian, Taoism, Tassoist. Then I read it a little more closely.

Taoism is the most prominent one of those, but even that doesn't begin with TAS.

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

Could have gotten all of them if the quizmaster was a bit more lenient with spelling - on Zambezi, Tajikistan. Not words I use every day.
