Your quiz is flawed. I keyed in AMERICA, TURKEY, CHINA and none would work. I stopped at getting 4 correct. Did the quiz twice and got 4 only both times as the correct answer would not be accepted.

technically it would be song with food in the title, as "Cold Turkey" which refers to a junkie stopping using immediately, the turkey in that phrase comes from the food item turkey, not the country. "from cold turkey being a dish that requires little preparation; originally used for heroin addicts"

America is the name of two continents, but it is also the name of a country. What are we supposed to call ourselves? United States of Americans? Oh, wait, that's still American.

What people call themselves is neither a country name nor a demonym. People from the United States of America are called Americans, but that does not make America a country. For USA it should either be the country name: the United States of America OR it should be the demonym: American. The last n is important. America is not any of those, and therefore the rules should be changes if America is being accepted. It would be like saying that "Danes" is a country name. It simply isn't (there are probably better examples to show the difference).

No. America is the continents of north America and south America. USA is the country.

Since we're conversing in English we might as well follow English language usage.
When we continue the conversation in Uzbek we'll use those conventions.

I simply forgot. It's been 32 yrs since I went to a Van Halen concert, and MTV rarely, if at all, plays videos these days. But it was fun hearing the song & watching the video again. I loved the 80s!
