There are two plants with that nickname, this one and Amorphophallus titanum, which by extreme coincidence I happened to come across yesterday!

just by flicking to suggestions on wikipedia, looking for something interesting that was where I ended up.. never in my life have I been on that page and suddenly, while after this quiz I went to read up on the plant in this quiz, there it was! I clicked a link in the text and huh wth this was what I was reading yesterday!

I actually tried carnivorous plant, I could picture it, atleast had a feeling the question was about the one I was picturing, and remembered it was a plant smelling of rotten flesh and I believed a big hole in the middle. Apparently there are not carnivorous, but parasitical. They look pretty carnivorous to me ;) (and definitely not like a lily, no offense)

I always thought Angkor Wat was supposedly the largest religious building in the world

Multiple sources claim it is, including Guinness World Records for one. Although, I understand Angkor is a Hindu site, which makes the question doubly troublesome.

Hmm... I removed Angkor Wat from the question. Angkor Wat is definitely Buddhist (but was originally built as a Hindu Temple). It may come down to the distinction between world's largest temple and world's largest temple complex.

"Supervolcano that erupted 74,000 years ago, nearly causing humans to become extinct." This is just a theory – not proven. In fact, there is a lot of evidence to the contrary.

I think "Papua" should work as a stand-in for New Guinea. It's also a name for the island which has reasonably wide currency in English, and is very prevalent in the Indonesian context particularly.
