Great quiz, just one point, why is it necessary to point out that the Caspian Sea is not part of an Ocean?. Is the Caspian Sea called part of an Ocean in any quiz in jetpunk?
+2
Level 58
Dec 18, 2017
I've seen people argue on other quizzes that the Caspian Sea is a sea and not a lake, based purely on its name.

Collins dictionary:

"A sea is a large area of salty water that is part of an ocean or is surrounded by land."

It's a basic truth of language that words mean what they are widely used to mean. If it's called the Caspian Sea then it is a sea. By all means exclude it from the definition of "landlocked", but don't pretend it's not a sea.

JonOfKent:

You are quoting the definition of sea as a countable noun [Collins] or a part of a name (Caspian, Aral, etc.)[Oxford]. The fact that you didn't went for Oxford or Webster and then specifically picked third definition from the Collins webpage, instead of the first one like a normal person would, makes me think that it was a deliberate attempt to sound smart. Or, at the very least, a clear case of confirmation bias, where you tried to find a definition that fit your opinion, rather that the truth. The true definition of the word is:

Collins dictionary:

"The sea is the salty water that covers about three-quarters of the Earth's surface."

That definition is not really helpfull in this matter, so I would rather use the one from Oxford dictionary, as Oxford is usually the "go to" anyways:

Oxford dictionary:

"the salt water that covers most of the earth’s surface and surrounds its continents and islands"

A third definition is still a definition.

DRC just manages to poke its way through to the Atlantic.

A country with an area of over two million square km, with a coastline that's about half the length of the Panama canal.

Why do you list every combination twice? Do you really need Armenia | Azerbaijan and Azerbaijan | Armenia?

Level 77
Aug 10, 2022
Because this way you have the option of thinking "Which countries border Azerbaijan?" or "Which countries border Armenia?" instead of forcing you to pick one or the other.

Wrong again. You can not recognize Kosovo as independent country.

Level 72
May 9, 2022
Who says you can’t? I do, my country does most of the reasonable world does, I.e. those with respect for the right to self-determination. A total of 117 countries have decided to recognise Kosovo, I’d prefer that we err on the side of the majority of world governments, rather than pandering to the outdated, nationalistic and chauvinist sentiments of people who don’t live there, haven’t been there, and wouldn’t if you asked them to.

Why would that be odd? The Caspian is a lake. Landlocked means no access to the ocean. Not no access to lakes. By that measure, virtually no landlocked countries exist.

I thought Azerbaijan was not landlocked due to it's position the Caspian Sea. The Caspian Sea is like the Black Sea
+2
Level 32
Mar 12, 2024
I believe its because the black sea counts as a sea because it connects to the Mediterranean sea through the Bosporus Strait, but the Caspian sea does not directly connect to another sea.
