Terminology Used:

River: A body of water bearing the same name for its course.

River system: A system which consists of at least two rivers. There are, however, requirements for this:

A river system has been assumed if it has:

1. its source in a lake which is fed by a river of another name (e.g. Selenge -> Lake Baikal -> Angara)

2. its source at the confluence of two rivers, then following the longer stem (e.g. Shatt al-Arab, then following the Euphrates stem)

This in return means that a longer tributary joining the main river later somewhere along its way is NOT considered a river system (e.g. Irtysh - Ob).

All headwaters included can be found in quiz stats.

Stay tuned, the World is coming next!

the Marghab river is missing on your map.

Besides that, it's an amazing quiz

Well the Shatt al-Arab (Euphrates + Tigris) does straddle Iran
