50 Largest Islands in the World

Every time you guess an answer, you will be shown one letter from each of the 9 answers above (the 2nd letter of the answer above, the 3rd of the answer 2 places above etc). This means that reading 'diagonally' (going down-right, starting from the answer below the one you're looking for) letters of the same colour as the rank number you'll be able to get a good hint (but not the initial letter!).
