Arguably Honshu is the most globally significant of these islands. Java is more populous, but its global economic impact is less. Great Britain is comparable in economic importance, but its population is less.

you should really change the names to more well known names: Great britain "England or united kingdom" and japan instead of honshu but otherwise a nice quiz.

Then that would defeat the purpose of the quiz. The island Tokyo is located on honshu, Japan is the name of the Nation. Same with London, it is located on the island of Great Britain, not United Kingdom or (god forbid) England.

These aren't better known names that you are suggesting, just the names of the countries that the cities are in, instead of the name of the islands they are on.

Or put in another way: Those are the countries these islands belong to. You should also notice that there is another Japanese city, Sapporo, which belongs to an entirely different island, Hokkaidō.

I tried 'new zealand north island' and 'new zealand south island' but they didnt count. I think they should? Also...I feel a bit uneasy about the ireland ine. Yes, great Britain is an island of 3 countries. But the ireland that contains ireland contains two separate countries. Ireland and northern ireland. Theyre not the same country. Maybe its ok but it doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the clues I feel.

This quiz is about islands. There is an island called Ireland and the biggest city on the island of Ireland is Dublin. This quiz has nothing to do with countries, nations, sovereign states, overseas territories etc.
