Maybe it has something to do with tectonic plates? Is Cyprus on the European or Asian tectonic plate? In the countries quiz, it's listed in Asia, but Cyprus is part or the EU. Are the islands of Trinidad and Tobago on the North American plate or the South American plate or some other plate?

I had a question about...the UK is not a country like the UAE. It's a group or Federation. Northern Ireland, Wales, England, and Scotland are countries. In the UAE, you have Dubai, Sharjah, Ras al-Khaimah, Fujairah, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, and Abu Dhabi. Some places on the internet call Scotland a country or England

a country. Not so much with the UAE, but they do, sometimes.

I know for the UK, one person represents the whole UK in the UN. So, it's difficult to determine when any website you look up England on, it'll say England is a country in Europe. Well, how can a country like England be part of a country like the UK?

Acts of Union 1707, ring a bell? Scotland and England were both sovereign countries before the Acts of Union happened. Tecnically, all the countries in the UK are countries, just not sovereign.

If our understanding of continents was actually based on plate tectonics, then the eastern tip of Russia would be in North America, Eurasia would be a single continent, India would not be Eurasian and it might be part of Australia, the Philippines would be its own continent and there would be a continent called the Caribbean that would include the southern 2/3rds of Central America as well as bits of Venezuela and Colombia.

In short, no, it's not about plate tectonics at all. Plate tectonic theory was first proposed in the early 1900s, a very long time after we were calling Africa Africa, calling Asia Asia, calling Europe Europe and so on.

1. There is only one Eurasian plate, not a European and an Asian plate.

2. Cyprus is on the Anatolian plate, which includes most of Turkey and a few islands.

In Brazil, 100% of schools teach that North America are only Mexico and the two above. South America is Colombia and the continental below. Central America is the rest: from Guatemala to Panama and allthe Caribbean Islands...

By this logic, the Middle East would not be part of Asia, it'd be its own separate continent. Same with Southeast Asia. Central America is a region. We're talking about continents. There are seven. Every land mass in the world fits into one of those seven.

Are you from Brazil? How many continents do they believe there are? The answer wouldn't be relevant to the quiz until this becomes a Portuguese-language website, but I am just curious.

When I was in school we were first taught that Central America didn't belong to any continent - it was a region all its own - but later we were taught that Central America was part of North America, although Caribbean islands still didn't belong to a continent. They were simply separate islands. I believe there are still some who maintain that only countries on continental landmasses belong with that continent. It doesn't really matter to me and I can see it both ways, but on this site I do as the Jetpunkers do.

Actually the islands of Trinidad, Tobago, Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao are all on the South American geologic plate. So, if

you want to be technical about it, they should be considered

part of South America. That does not exorcise them from the

Caribbean because Venezuela and Colombia are in South \

America, yet considered part of the Caribbean because part

of their countries are on the Caribbean.

Actually, Trinidad is on the South American Plate, as are Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. And, as far as Panama being part of North and not South America: Panama was once part of Colombia, so

either Panama is in South America or Colombia is in North America!

Hello ladies, gentlement and everybody else wondering about what is North and what is not. This quiz follows JetPunk's definition of continental borders. That means that no Greenland (Nor Denmark), no France, no UK, no Netherlands (No Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Marteen also), no Colombia and no Venezuela. The Caribbean follows the law of 'Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago are the borders and if you pass that borders you are South American'. And of course, no territory or constituent coutry is considered a country in its own right.
