I'm guessing that coastal moderation of temperatures kept Lithuania warm enough to miss the list.

Lithuania is far enough south that with coastal moderation, it stays higher than Belarus, which sits inland. Even though it is farther south, it has no coast to warm it.

I had to remember to consider average elevation for certain countries like Switzerland that are not that far north.

Agreed. My mind immediately went to "furthest north", so I got 8 out of 10 very quickly. Then after trying a several more incorrect answers, "high elevation" occurred to me, and I got the last 2.

Arguably, the average temperature refers to the entire country, not just the European part. If that distinction could be made, i.e. average temperature for just European Russia, it might place differently on the list.
