There's a lot of disagreement about what the Indian Ocean is. If you are going to count the Red Sea & the Persian Gulf, then please say so in the instructions.

Well I mean it is common sense to know that seas are part of the larger ocean to which they are connected to, I do not think it is necessary to include that. The Indian Ocean is made up of the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Bay of Bengal, Gulf of Oman, Arabian Sea, Timor Sea, Andaman Sea, Laccadive Sea, Persian Gulf, and the Mozambique Channel. Since those are all connected to the Indian Ocean it should be known that they count. It would be very hard to define the indian ocean without the use of those separate seas and gulfs.

I got 34/35. Spent ages trying to find out last one bordering the INDIAn Ocean. When I finished, it turned out I left INDIA. What is adding the frustration is that I am of Indian descent. I just can't believe it
