READ BEFORE COMMENTING

This is the definition of "North America" I am using for this quiz:

Border with Asia: Russian islands are part of Asia, and the American islands are part of North America.

Border with Oceania: Hawaii is part of Oceania.

Border with Europe: Greenland is in North America, Iceland and the Azores are in Europe.

Border with South America: The continental border is the thinnest part of the Isthmus of Panama. In the Caribbean, the vast majority of islands are part of North America. These are the Greater Antilles, the Lesser Antilles (including the Dutch ABC islands, Federal Dependencies of Venezuela, and Nueva Esparta), as well as San Andres y Providencia (a department of Colombia). The only Caribbean islands that are part of South America are more minor ones just off the South American coast.

Update Feb 7 2023: Exactly a year after it was published, this quiz now has a map! I would like to make it so there are no islands off the edge of the map, but I am not good enough with SVGs to fix that at this moment.
