Greenland technically is a constituent country of Denmark though, if I remember correctly. So in this case it's much the same as making an England Country Quiz.

Greenland is a country, it just isn't a sovereign one.

It must be one, cos it has a sovereign - Queen Margrethe II at the moment.

She rules the Kingdom of Denmark, which just so happens to include Greenland.

A question: do you believe that India was sovereign during the British Raj? Were they exercising power of rule?

I feel like ice and Iceland shouldn't both be answers here, or at the very least put ice first so it's not filled in before you reach the question.

I did, but wasn't aware greenland had its own language. I mean I know there are inuit languages, but didn't know they went by the name greenlandic and that it was the official language. I would ve guessed a scandinavian language for the official one (not necessarily the most widely spoken, so not in households per see, but like in cityhall and official stuff)

Good to have learned how the actual situation is :)

Kinda odd, but the country trivia list states that 12 good answers are required, but the quiz itself states 14 are required. Which is incorrect?

Well it is, but I believe the phrase you are looking for is "sovereign state."

The last question says "Greeland" instead of Greenland, not sure if that's intentional

Greenland bears about the same relationship to Denmark as Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten do to Netherlands, as Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau Islands do to New Zealand, as the Faeroe Islands do, also to Denmark, as Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man do to the UK (none of which are part of the United Kingdom). How about quizzes on them too?
