Two questions sharing the same answer (Turkey)?

I don't have a problem with it, per sé, but it is unusual.

(And caused me to spend a fair bit of time scratching my head trying to figure out what country Mount Ararat could possibly be in, if not Turkey, before I shrugged and tried anyway.)

I mean, it is in Turkey, but if one were convinced it wasn't, there is one pretty obvious alternative: Armenia, for which the mountain remains a national symbol (it appears on the Armenian coat of arms). It's also very close to the borders with Azerbaijan and Iran.

"Controls" is a very weird way of putting it. Can a volcano be controlled? A cathedral? A mountain range?

Agreed. Why not "where are these places?" Or something similar. Control is sounds way too colonial ...

But “Where are these places?” wouldn’t work for Gibraltar or the Azores.

In a way, yes, it can be controlled. If someone decides to put a house or use some land on the volcano, if you control it, you can claim it and make them go away/pay taxes. You can even control submarine volcano, if someone decides to fish around it, you can regulate those activities as it is your area.

You control the land where it is, you don’t control the thing itself.

Great quiz but it should be changed to where is it located not who controls it. For example Mt Vesuvius is located in Italy but it is actually controlled by the mafia.
