I guess that's why 82% also get it wrong. Who's ever heard of Charlottetown?

I've been there, and a wonderful island it is... put it on your bucket list. I'd planned on a couple of days on PEI, but had to pull myself away after two weeks soaking up that magical place.

I've known about Charlottetown for decades. You need to read some of the Anne of Green Gables books.

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.

It's the only one I missed, too, and I read the Anne of Green Gables books when I was young but I just forgot their setting.

Nice quiz...different.

level 15
Mar 18, 2013
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.
+3
level 45
Mar 18, 2013
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.
+1

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.
+1
level 62
Apr 10, 2013
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.

why japan? japan is a country made up of islands
+1
level 67
Jul 26, 2015
why single those out? why not make mention of north island and south island? most people never think about new zealand as a multi island nation...whereas japan...it is always (well should be anyway) at the forefront of one's mind it is a country made up of several islands

In NZ we actually always call them the North Island and the South Island.

This quiz is ABOUT islands. Why would we accept the part-of-an-island England, the multiple-islands-United-Kingdom, or the many-islands-Japan?

The answer for Palma would be Spain in that case.

No, Great Britain is the mainland island that constitutes most of England wales and Scotland, but excludes all the outlying islands such as Hebrides, wight, Shetland etc

I was guessing random islands at the end, so I began typing "Principe" but accidentally typed P-E-I instead of P-R-I and I got Prince Edward Island as a result lol

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.

Would it be possible to accept Eire as well as Ireland, it is sometimes used by English speakers to refer to the island as opposed to the republic
+1
level 65
Aug 27, 2016
I've only heard Eire used for 'The Republic of Ireland' not for the island of Ireland.
+1

May 25, 2018
The Irish Republic's postage stamps all have 'Eire' on them not Ireland.
+1
level 56
Aug 10, 2017
Eire refers to the sovereign nation of the Republic of Ireland - it is not the name of the island.

That's not the name of the island. It's the name of the city. Palma de Mallorca means Palma of Mallorca. (The city of Palma. Which one? The one on the island of Mallorca.)

perhaps if you are looking to add anything you could add columbo - sri lanka and valletta - malta
