Great quiz. A lot of small extra steps needed. I beat my head against the table figuring out what mountain that could be since my first answer didn't take.

Could you include United Kingdom/UK as additional answers for Great Britain? That will make it consistent with the other geography quizzes on this site. Nice quiz! I liked the picture choices. :)

The United Kingdom/UK is not synonymous with Great Britain.The UK includes Northern Ireland and several smaller surrounding islands. Great Britain is just the island that contains England, Scotland, and Wales.

That would not be consistent. No other featured quizzes accept UK for the name of the island of Great Britain.

The island is New Guinea. New Guinea includes the Indonesian states of Papua and West Papua in addition to mainland Papua New Guinea.

But Papua is also the Indonesian name for the whole island, it should be accepted.

That one got me too. I couldn't figure out why PNG wasn't accepted. Face palm when I saw the answer. Great quiz, BTW.

I guessed 17 , but only got 16 - as I wrote Papua-New Guinea, so full name should count.

Then I want "Haiti" to count as well! But no, in all honesty: They should not count, because both islands contain more than one country.

And then we should count "England" for "Great Britain"!

We should count "my house" for Great Britain. I mean, they're fairly synonymous.

*sigh* *gets ready to type the same thing I've typed a billion times in this comment section* Papua New Guinea is the name of the country that takes up half of the island, not the island itself. New Guinea is not an abbreviation of Papua New Guinea, they just have similar names, but they're not interchangeable terms. Just like accepting Indonesia for Borneo would be completely ridiculous, so would accepting Papua New Guinea for New Guinea.

Papua New Guinea is an island on the country that takes up about half of the island- the other half being Indonesia. They aren't interchangeable.

Thanks for accepting 'Rapa Nui' for Eastern Island, which is actually the original/official name of the island.
