Great quiz. Only thing bothering me is having to write "island" in the Y question.

How is New Guinea the second largest island in the world? You got Australia in front, and for sure some random Canadian Islands, then maybe Iceland or Svalbard.

Australia is considered to be a continent, and New Guinea, Borneo, and Madagscar are all bigger than Canada's largest island, Baffin.

The Canadian ones look bigger because of the map projection, but New Guinea is actually massive

Some requiring 'island' (notably Y) is inconsistent, please just accept the first word.

The clue for M feels really out of place compared the the others - its an island that is famous for a lot more than just that movie.

Palau is not an island. The island of Ngerulmud is called Babeldaob.

Great quiz, thanks!

A nitpick: Ngerulmud is not a city. No one lives there. The only real town in Palau is Koror, the former capital. Ngerulmud is considered the capital, but it is only a hill with a capitol building on it. There is no town or city there, in fact I argue that this makes Palau the only country with a capital with a population of 0.

Palau is divided into states akin to Carribean "townships". There is no distinction between state and town. On the island of Babeldaob, the map is divided into a few states with the hamlets therein bearing the same name. Ngerulmud is located within Melekeok state but a plaque in front of the capital says that Melekeok donated the land to the federal government to make it a new capital. I take that to mean that it is no longer part of Melekeok. Once again reinforcing my view that Ngerulmud is the capital and its population is zero. A very unique situation.

As a Swede, I'm irked by counting Öland as starting with O. Ö is very much its own, separate letter in the Swedish language.

I liked the quiz, but it should be Islands A-Z #2 - there's already a featured version.
