To be more accurate shouldn't the name of the quiz be "Largest Inhabited Islands of the British Isles"?

Also as Ireland is included it might be worth adding some of the Irish Islands that are populated and are bigger than some on this list e.g. Rathlin Island (pop. 100), Arranmore (pop. 514), Inishmore (pop. 840), Great Island (pop. 12,000), Inchydoney (pop. 193) etc?

Otherwise a good idea for a quiz!

You have Fetlar misspelled. Couldn't figure out why it wasn't accepting it, so kept trying misspellings--and 'Feltar' took.

Both title and description are entirely misleading. I would've guessed Achill had there been any mention of Ireland. Though I suppose I should have wondered that Ireland was an obvious answer.

Please reticle this quiz, or remove Achill. It is nowhere near Britain. You could use British Isles to include Achilles, but you'd need to include the other inhabited islands off the west coast of Ireland.

Also, Fair Isle is bigger than Lundy. This would be my favourite quiz on Jetpunk, but the mistakes let it down.
