Shouldn't greenland/denmark be the most western point of europe. (And if one says no, well wouldnt it have to be north america's most eastern point as a result?)

People need to make up their minds wether or not it belongs to denmark or not, instead of completely ignoring it exists, as is done on most quizzes.

Yes but no. France UK and other european countries have claims in island territories such as the UK's Pitcairn islands or France's French Polynesia which goes as far East and West according to a true meridian.

The US also has overseas territory which makes it the furthest in al but north.

the biggest probelm is in deciding which terretories count and which don't such as Antartica.

Fiji as answers for Oceania E and W seem wrong, as does E for North America - should be Canada, not USA

USA is East of the antimeridian with some pacific territories. in that sense shouldn't the UK be the furthest west as they have islands west of the US mainlands and east as they own territories deep in the indian ocean? If that is too much of a stretch then Denmark should be the furthest west due to their owning of Greenland.

Another thing that doesn't make sense is that many countries own claims in Antartica which would make them further south than the others.

I think territories should be counted out as there are too many questions to answer. maybe change the name to the "furthest nsew countries by mainland"
