Same! I was like, "I don't know any more of these, but they both start with T... Let's see what they are," then clicked Give Up right as I noticed I was missing not two but THREE answers

Nice! I suggest changing the hint to 'Only national capital that starts with this letter' and perhaps 'Country reaching furthest north on land' or something

well, what would it be, by geographical center? haha just teasing :D
Islamabad's doing poorly in the stats, so I think "I" should stick :)

So the four unique national capitals can be remembered with the anagram "Q.U.I.Z.!" I don't know what the means, but...it's something!

I thought for sure that Istanbul was the capital of Turkey -- but I see it is Ankara.

I think that's part of the reason for so few people getting Islamabad - Istanbul comes to mind very readily because of its fame.

I thought "Islamabad" and still managed to type "Istanbul. Evidently my fingers are a bit behind on geography.

So, is Australia not an island? Isn't it called "the island continent?"
+1
level 59
Nov 25, 2015
All of JetPunk considers Greenland the largest island, as continental landmasses do not count.
+1
level 59
Nov 25, 2015
:) 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.

Technically Rabat is the 7th largest city but the 2nd largest metropolitan area. They are quite different in meaning.

Technically.

Nov 29, 2015
The pint was the clue should say 2nd largest metropolitan area, not 2nd largest city. Rabat is not a correct answer for 2nd largest city but is for 2nd larget metro area.

But metro area is a form of saying city. Is that wrong? No.
+1
level 66
Dec 3, 2015
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.

Greenland is considered a territory of Denmark, not a country.

Nov 29, 2015
you are wrong, Greenland is an autonpmous country within the the kingdom of denmark. Much the same way Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and England are countries within the United Kingdom.
+1
level 59
Nov 29, 2015
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?)
