Bit controversial, but I tried Alderney for the smallest territory question and feel like there could be some leeway?

The correct answer is the Balliwick of Guernsey, which is comprised of both Guernsey, Alderney, and Sark, of which Sark is the smallest.

Basically I ruled out Guernsey, knowing it was bigger. I think all three islands should be "correct" even if it's not exactly right because the Balliwick is much more obscure than any of the islands themselves. (The answer should read "Balliwick of Guernsey" however, I believe)
