    1. Hi Steve – thanks for your comment. Did you use the print friendly versions? At the bottom of each quiz is a green button, designed to make them easier to print off in a short space. If you did use this and they’re still not printing properly, please let me know as that quiz works fine on this format for me. 🙂

    1. Hi Craig – I believe that the general consensus is that Australia is considered to be the world’s smallest continent and Greenland the world’s largest island. Admittedly what constitutes a continent and not an island is not always clear cut, but as I understand it the fact that it has tectonic independence from other countries forms part of the reason. The definition of ‘island’ in the dictionary I have defines it as “a tract of land completely surrounded by water and not large enough to be called a continent”, so by that definition Greenland would be the correct answer. I would be very interested in anyone who has any specialist knowledge on this subject though!

      1. It is the kind of question that I would avoid as a question master. Any question of which the answer involves further discussion is a “no” “No” for me.
