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.

Yes but the name is least mentioned, you allways hear just japan, while you often enough hear borneo or sumatra etc

Great Britain is the UK without Northern Ireland and oversea territories... right?
+1
level 66
Oct 24, 2018
What, you are correct, The UK is the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". So therefore Great Britain must include all the outlying English, Scottish and Welsh islands, such as Wight, Skye and Anglesey. So I don't understand why "Great Britain" is given as the correct answer to the question, surely it should be just "Britain"?
+2

Great Britain is the name of the big island, but the term is also used to include the smaller islands. Context is the key - geographically the term usually refers just to the main island.

I think every Brit, German and French person has heard of it purely because it’s something of a rite of passage to go on holiday there as a child. And then again as an adult, to drink copiously and throw up on people.

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 67
Aug 27, 2016
I've only heard Eire used for 'The Republic of Ireland' not for the island of Ireland.

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.)
