I knew it was Anglesey, I just thought it was spelt Anglesea. Sadly, it was not accepted. I find out Anglesea is in Australia...

It's not Anglesey it's actually Ynys Mon:)

In Welsh it is Ynys Mon, in English it is Anglesey and considering this is an English quiz where all other answers are anglicized, one would gather that the correct answer for this quiz question is Anglesey.

No. Corsica is made of two departments, whose capitals are Bastia and Ajaccio, Ajaccio being the largest city. Corte is just the historical capital.

"the pond" was a pretty confusing clue about the Atlantic(Unless there is some sort of reference I'm missing here)

It may be more of an American reference than international. For example, when I was working for a French company, we would characterize a trip to Paris as going "across the pond".

In the UK we refer to America as being "across the pond"

That's like with "across the street" - whichever side of the street I go to, they tell me it's on the other side. Who's lying to me???

For more than a year, now, Alsace has not been a region. It was merged with Lorraine and Champagne-Ardenne to form Grand-Est back on 1st January, 2016. Perhaps make the question about a former region, or replace it completely.
