I feel like ice and Iceland shouldn't both be answers here, or at the very least put ice first so it's not filled in before you reach the question.

I did, but wasn't aware greenland had its own language. I mean I know there are inuit languages, but didn't know they went by the name greenlandic and that it was the official language. I would ve guessed a scandinavian language for the official one (not necessarily the most widely spoken, so not in households per see, but like in cityhall and official stuff)

Good to have learned how the actual situation is :)

Same. Just did the Palau one, it asks for two different languages. I typed English and thought the other one was some native exotic language, so I gave up. It was Palauan.

Kinda odd, but the country trivia list states that 12 good answers are required, but the quiz itself states 14 are required. Which is incorrect?

Greenland bears about the same relationship to Denmark as Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten do to Netherlands, as Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau Islands do to New Zealand, as the Faeroe Islands do, also to Denmark, as Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man do to the UK (none of which are part of the United Kingdom). How about quizzes on them too?

Yeah, and I would like to add, some are legally part of larger sovereign states. Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten, together with the Netherlands, are all parts of Kingdom of the Netherlands.

I learned about it in primary school as the "Ice Cap," but I don't think I have heard that term since then. Maybe it's an old term or it's just a certain sort of colloquial, but it is definitely a term that was used widely somewhere at some time.
