Don't wana be all technical, but a few points... 1. It's Great Britain that's an island not the UK, since Northern Ireland is part of the UK and it's connected to Ireland 2. That's why Ireland isn't an island either 3 What's the reason to exclude Australia?

Well australia has always been a problem with islands, because some people see it as a continent and some don't. The UK is a country located completely on islands, just like ireland, and AKE88, Great Britain is the name of the island on which Scotland, wales and england are located, so the UK and Ireland are islands.

Great Britain= England, Scotland and Wales (an island)........UK= England, Scotland, Wales AND Northern Ireland....now please check a map and look at Northern Ireland, it is connected to Ireland, which means that UK is NOT an island and neither is Ireland

I told u I'm being very technical, most people won't see it this way, but then again, many ppl are ignorant of what the differences are between the UK, Great Britian, and the British Isles

There's a difference between "being technical" and missing the point completely.

Ake88 there is a difference between island countries and countries without land borders. UK and Ireland are completely located on islands, BUT have land borders, just like Brunei, East Timor, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia

Great, great quiz, but there are a couple of technical things that could be worked out: you've allowed abbreviation of Saint for Saint Vincent and Saint Kitts, but not for Saint Lucia; and you allow "Marshall" as an answer without needing to type "Islands", but require fully typing "Solomon Islands".
