Good one, although Australia's highest mountain is actually Mawson Peak on Heard Island. Probably easiest to just change the Australian one to a different country.

I think a caveat can solve this problem, something like 'not including external territories'. Otherwise Denmark would also have to be changed to Gunnbjorn Fjeld in Greenland.

Mont Blanc and Monte Bianco is the same, there is no point in spliting them.

I liked the quiz, if I could give one suggestion it would be to put the elevation of each mountain in as well to give the quiz a sense of scale :)
