Oops accidently deleted my comment instead of replying, anyways, if you look it up you will need to scroll to you see the land area table in which case China is second. If you take away all the water in Canada it ranks 4th. Since the quiz says land area the answer is China. If you even check the wikiepedia page about area it shows its land area as higher than Canada's.

Another nitpicker here - I immediately knew the answer but eggplants can be several colors besides purple - white, pink, orange, yellow, or green. The commercial ones in the US are usually the honking big purple ones but their name originated from the smaller white ones that look like eggs.

"Fruit" has a scientific definition and a culinary definition. "Vegetable" only has a culinary definition. An eggplant (like the tomato) is scientifically a fruit, but culinarily a vegetable.

So just let me introduce myself

My name is Humpty, pronounced with a "umpty"

Yo ladies, oh how I like to hump thee

You're gonna fall when the stereos pump me
