From that article: "The summit of Everest is the point at which Earth's surface reaches the greatest distance above sea level. Several other mountains are sometimes claimed as alternative "tallest mountains on Earth". Mauna Kea in Hawaii is tallest when measured from its base;[42] it rises over 10,200 m (33,464.6 ft) when measured from its base on the mid-ocean floor, but only attains 4,205 m (13,796 ft) above sea level."

:) The answers on that quiz pertain to each continent, tho. So Australia is the largest island in the region of Oceania, while Greenland is the largest worldwide.

ps: How did you write "Said quiz."? I usually write hyperlinks as a href="URL"=>TEXT (with 'less than' sign at the front)

"The answers on that quiz pertain to each continent, tho. So Australia is the largest island in the region of Oceania, while Greenland is the largest worldwide." - Ha? If Australia is counted as an island for the purposes of Oceania, how is it not the biggest worldwide? It's clearly vastly larger than Greenland. I myself tend to not count it as an island. If it is counted as an island, then why is it the biggest - why not count all of Afro-Eurasia as the biggest island? Gotta stop somewhere.

Metro area is not the same as saying city. Example: the Los Angeles Metro area has 18 Million plus people in it. Los Angeles, the city , actually only has 3 million people in it. The LA Metro area consists of 57, yes 57, separate cities with their own mayors and councils.

Also ,technically, Greenland is the northern most country. It has a northernmost point of 83 degrees 40 minutes. Canada northernmost point is 83 degrees 6 minutes. Greenland is an Autonomous Country within the Kingdom of Denmark. So either Greenland is correct or Denmark is correct, but not Canada.

I understand that. Even so, if Greenland didn't work, you should've at least tried Canada. Besides, the final location doesn't make sense if the answer is Greenland (The Great Vigtoria Desert?)

This is not a criticism or point of contention; the clue is not misleading the way it's worded. Just for informational purposes, the lowest point of dry surface land on Earth is the valley under Byrd Glacier: 9120 feet below sea level. I think the shore of the Dead Sea is usually reported around -1388 feet. Thanks for the quiz.
