But in this case it makes a totally different sound, it would make it kernobyl or sernobyl, so I get why it wouldnt be accepted.

The mountains that are commonly accepted as the division between Europe and Asia are the Urals (googling it gives the Urals as the result). I believe the Caucausus clue could be different, such as "Mountain range after which a branch of the human race is named". Enjoyable quiz nonethless, perhaps others don't agree with my remark but that's fine.

Both the Urals and the Caucasus separate Europe and Asia.

By the way, Google "instant answers" are a trainwreck of misinformation.

I think you should change the wording on the Chernobyl question, since Chernobyl was the name of the nuclear plant, whereas Pripyat was the name of the city. Really good quiz otherwise!

Pripyat is closer to the nuclear plant, but the plant was named for the also nearby Chernobyl city, which is also a ghost town after the disaster.

I wouldn't have thought Cork was south west Ireland given that it's on the east coast. I get that it is quite a way west of the most easterly point of Ireland but even then if you look at an east west continuim is pretty central
