Decent Quiz but a couple of mistakes

1. Turkey is NOT part of Europe. Even that part next to Istanbul isn't part of the Middle East

2. There ARE autobahns in Austria. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autobahns_of_Austria

3. Baikal is the biggest lake surrounded by one country. If there is another, let me know

I can only agree with the Austrian autobahns. But the rest are aren't. Middle East is positioned in three continents and the largest lake surrounded by one country is the Lake Michigan surrounded by the US.

he's actually right about Lake Michigan. It's 58000 sqkm and doesn't reach the border of Canada. Lake Baikal is only 31000 sqkm

The World's deepest point is Challenger Deep in The Mariana Trench, not The Dead Sea.

"The Middle East" is a geographical subcontinent, it has nothing to do with Turkey having European holdings and Egypt having African holdings. By that logic, Western Europe spans 5 continents just from France alone.

Very meh quiz, you changed the true/false buttons around a lot

Another nice quiz, Aaron. I didn't know that about Igbo and the others not being official languages.

Just a wee correction, as mentioned in the previous comment: there *are* parts of Antarctica...
