Similar to your other quiz I'm wondering why you didn't include France due Tahiti or French Polynesia.

Why aren't the Chatham Islands considered Overseas Territories of New Zealand?

Because it's a direct part of the country of New Zealand and operates as a territorial authority.

Peru extends farther west than Colombia - does Columbia have islands farther west similar to Ecuador and Chile?

It feels a bit odd that inhabitated rocks in the sea are considered to be essential parts of a country but oversea territories such as Tahiti do not count. Just said.

The galapagos are part of Ecuador, which reach out as west as Guatemala. Peru, while similar to Ecuador on the mainland continent, does not have something like the galapagos.

Edit for French2010's comment: That, I do not know. I don't know about Columbia, my comment was directed to rohfi.

Easter Island is a 'province' of Chile and the Galapagos are a 'province' of Ecuador, which both equate to something like a 'county' in the USA I think? A subdivision of a region or state. French Polynesia isn't administratively part of the départements of France in that sort of way.

While I'm not sure about Easter Island, the Galapagos are a first-level subdivision in Ecuador. So more like a state.

Honduras stretches slightly further west than the western border of Belize. I think the order needs to be switched

If you don't include anything overseas, then you shouldn't include Easter Islands and the Galapagos. Be consistent, please.

The Galapagos Islands are not overseas territories, but an overseas province. In essence, Galapagos is like Hawaii and Tahiti for example is like Puerto Rico. I hope you know the difference.

I am pondering the validity of this quiz. Among South American countries, Ecuador and Peru must be the two westernmost...
