I didn't get to the last 5 questions.

I think more time would be nice.

I think you had to answer which of the four letters had a country come first; didn't get it either when I took the quiz though

I still think this could use more time. A lot of these questions are things you have to figure out as opposed to just know, so it can take a while to answer even one of them. I ran out of time and had to just guess the last three!

Nice quiz otherwise though!

I could be wrong but my understanding was that Mount Vinson was the tallest mountain in Antarctica and that it was located in the Vinson Massif region.
