This is a great idea :) However, I found it visually difficult to interpret which answer fit for which clue. Could you please make an extra column and put the starting letters in them? Thank you :)

Super quiz. I looked up IJ words and found a Dutch word "ij" - it would make the quiz complete, but I suppose it's a bit obscure.

The clue for outcrop isn't very accurate. An outcrop is when bedrock is exposed at the surface (but elsewhere is usually covered by soil or other layers of rock). I'm not sure where you got the clue definition from but suggest it needs to be looked at.

you could add a word beginning with z and ending in a, to make it more complete chain. eg zeta, zoella, zoomania, zooxanthella. other than that great quiz!
