You should accept "Newfoundland" for Newfoundland and Labrador.

I'm surprised at how low the French territory has been guessed, when in the instructions it clearly says "French territory". It baffles me.

I'm sure that the French territory is so, well, unknown that few people know about it.

I guessed DC first, and I'm not sure that's wrong. Then went skeptically to Nunavut, and was reassured when it didn't work. Took me a couple minutes to remember New France.

DC is near the mountains and pretty hilly but too close to the ocean to be in them.

You could have told me not only that it is a French territory, but could have also spelled out every letter except that last one for me and I still would not have gotten it. No idea what or where the place is; I will now look it up, however.

Geez, just Territory as a clue even if you tried Nunavut and the Northwest Territories would leave just one along that whole swath. Hopefully a lot of people googled and learned. Beautiful place and still a major political connection in North America.

I don't think that it's because we didn't read "French territory," I think it was more that we didn't know WHICH French territory. Most of us probably have either never heard of Saint Pierre and Miquelon or have no idea where the frick it is, much less that it's in the Appalachian mountains. I, myself, have read the fine print and have heard of the island itself, but had no idea it was near Canada, so I obviously didn't guess it.

On Wikipedia, it does say that St. Pierre and Miquelon does touch the Appalachian Mountains, so I think it should be included.

I always thought the Newfoundland area, including Saint Pierre and Miquelon, was more a part of the Canadian Shield than the Appalachian Mountains. I'm not one to argue with Wikipedia, though.

How does St Pierre and Miquelon touch the Appalachian Mountains? They're islands.

Bernard62601 that's exactly what I was thinking. Anyone have an explanation for how St Pierre is part of the Appalachians?

They're geologically in the same mountain range. The Appalachians were formed long ago, when the continents weren't yet separated. The International Appalachian Trail (IAT) does stretch all the way to Newfoundland from Mount Katahdin in Maine. It even has a few chapters in Greenland, Western Europe (UK, Spain, Netherlands, Scandinavia and such) and Northern Africa (Morocco), since the mountains there where once all part of the Central Pangean Mountains. Originally, some peaks were as high as the Alps or the Rockies. Amazing how much erosion has shorted and smoothed them over millions of years...

The range comprises some of the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon. Don't ask how. I'm guessing some of the mountains on there are classified as part of the range.

See my comment a few posts above. (In short, the mountains were all in the same range millions of years ago, when the world was just one huge continent. They got separated since, but maintain some healthy family ties.)

Yes it is, but mountain ranges don't always have to be above water, so the range reaches there. Great Quiz

I don't think two little islands touch the Appalachians. I knew the answer based on "French territory" but I don't agree with it.

But you agree with Newfoundland, which is also an island?

The province is called Newfoundland and Labrador; Labrador being on the mainland.

The mountains are actually in Newfoundand, not Labrador. The Appalachians go underwater onto Newfoundland in a range called the Long Range Mountains and honestly they look more like Norway than the Appalachians.

The Long Range Mountains are pretty physically similar to the Chicchocs in the Gaspe or the Cape Breton Highlands in Nova Scotia, a series of flat-topped subalpine or alpine plateaus with tons of glacial erosion. They are more dramatically glacially eroded than either, with actual fjords and tons of cirques, and have a lot more land above treeline, but I wouldn't say they are totally unlike anywhere else in the Appalachians.

Since 14.5% of quiz takers reportedly got a 100% on their first attempt, that means about 1,588 people got 100% on their first attempt. So yes.
