I tried to make this quiz about light topics, such as names and landforms. Any border disputes, unrecognized nations, or deeper subjects may be on a quiz for another day.

Good quiz. Please consider not requiring River as part of the Amazon answer. I couldn't figure out why "Amazon" wasn't accepted!

What the hekuba is an Afro-Eurasia? - Europe and Asia are one continent, therefore, Eurasia maybe an appropriate term to eliminate the constant bickering. Africa, on the other hand, is a separate continent.

Dude, how is Europe and Asia one continent, they are obviously separate continents, so all of them is a separate continent, Europe and Asia is bordering but that doesn’t make them one continent, so these are just a shorter term for these continents combined, like the Americas, and more

Good quiz: I think the 'New Guinea' question should read 'Australasia' not 'Australia' talking from a continental standpoint. I also think putting Afghanistan in a Middle East region is pushing it a bit, likewise Pakistan.

The reason it's controversial is because some people see Indonesian New Guinea as part of Australia/ Oceania. If it said Australasia, which I'm assuming is a combination of Australia and Asia, there would be no controversy.
