Mauritius's northernmost point is actually farther north than Madagascar and Comoros, because of the South Agalega Islands

I use the grouping system: 4 5-letter words: Palau, Nauru, Samoa and Tonga, 2 XXX islands: Marshall Islands and Solomen Islands, and the rest are easy

Nice quiz, got 100% on my first try. I also tried Australia, Tuvalu, Malawi and Zambia. Turns out they are the near misses.

Nice quiz, but shouldn't the instructions say "most southerly in latitude" rather than "lowest in latitude"? "Lowest" means closest to zero, ie closest to the equator, like Singapore.
