You can remember Severny because it's one half of what's basically a severed island.

According to Wikipedia Svalbard is an archipelago. So... not a single island.

Svalbard is an archipelago (often combined with Jan Mayen), consisting of Spitsbergen, Nordaustlandet and EdgeĆøya. That would be like accepting Philippines collectively for all their islands.

Answering "No" should be accepted since the question is : "Can you identify and name all arctic islands that are larger than 10,000 square kilometres?" :D

I knew quite a bit of the Canadian and Russian islands (probably from Arctic research to making a fictional country https://pwufc.fandom.com/wiki/Greenlandic_Empire which has invaded most all of these xD)

Quite an odd quiz in my opinion. I'm not really sure why we needed so much time, as you either know them or you don't and will never get them. I got 6, gave up after 2 minutes, and got 4 points for it. I'm not saying this is bad, but it is unusual for a Jetpunk quiz.
