As a keen amateur Jetpunk comment & quiz historian, I surmise that the quiz used to have the 2 French islands labelled as having different statuses, at least one being labelled an 'overseas territory'. QM since changed it per the [better worded] suggestion below. 🔍

Indeed, both French possessions are French departements, or Region, and both are part of France. A french overseas territory would be considered where France has an influence, but the territory don't account directly to France

It is true. There is a very small colouring of purple on the rainbow of the Nicaragua flag.

According to Wikipedia: "The presence of a rainbow in the coat of arms makes the flag of Nicaragua one of only two flags of a sovereign state to include the color purple, alongside the flag of Dominica." .

Indeed... "The Boiling Lake is a flooded fumarole located in Morne Trois Pitons National Park, a World Heritage site on the island of Dominica."
