Madagascar is not the right answer! Australia is the right answer because it is an island AND a continent! That presenter doesn't know her geography very well! Nor does the student who answered the question!!

First question was really hard to me, second was easy and third required calculations (km->miles). Love NG from Russia

Places in Antarctica are drier than the Atacama. I got Madagascar and I guessed 8000 miles.

I got ONE out of three (Madagascar), and I was WAAAAYY over on the equatorial circumference of the Earth.  Oh well.  I probably still did better than most people...

They should go easy on them. Simply ask them to name a country in South America.

Stupid low IQ and ignorant Americans must be replaced by stupid low IQ Arab Muslims from Syria, Libya, and other radical Muslims in Africa and the middle east. You stupid low IQ and ignorant Americans deserve Sharia Law. All ignorant Americans need to stripped of their U.S. citizenships and shipped to Libya and enslaved by Sharia Law.

Hey that's Tedashii!! "You just gotta live!"
Mshojat (1 month ago)
I said "somewhere in Chile or Argentina" for the first question, "Sri Lanka" for the second, and "around 7000" for the third. I guess that's not too bad compared to the average person even if sri lanka was wrong (I wasn't thinking a large enough area)

I only knew the Madagascar question. These are very obscure questions for me. Im surprised i got one correct. I have a felling most the people in the comments are lying about getting 2 or 3 correct.

Indians are spread across all of geographic area that's why they kill it in geography.

I got them correct. Once you do a lot of Geography quizzes (I do), those questions are pretty easy, except maybe the last one, but I knew from Astronomy, because I'm also interested in that topic ^^

Almost any country in the world would consider these questions easy. This is a fine example of the appalling state of American education.

Why don’t you go up to random kids and ask them the questions when they don’t have time to study answers for a game show

peter neagle (2 months ago)
My original thought for largest island in the Indian ocean was Madagascar but then i thought. Why wouldnt Australia be considered to be the largest island it is bordered on the west side by the indian ocean.

If you want to ask a geography question that does not include North America, do NOT ask Americans .....they are ignoramuses when it comes to World geography!

Sahara comes from Arabic Sahra2 or الصحراء and we just call it Al-Sahra2 Al-Kubra or الصحراء الكبرى which means the Great Desert.

First question she asked is actually wrong anyway - The driest place in the world is the 'Dry valleys' in Antarctica - no rain for over two million years.

1/3 but i dont know miles
Brad Hamilton (3 months ago)
Oh to know so much at 10 only to be washed up and an outcast at 23!!
Kevin Dallas (3 months ago)
Seriously? I can identify nearly every country on the planets, most rivers, all oceans and continents, and a bunch of other geo stuff and I had no idea about #1, and on #3, to within one mile??? Really?? I don't even know how far it is to my favorite store to within a mile. I never learned that to more than the 8,000 mile estimate. I knew it was slightly less, but ONE MILE? This truly qualifies as TRIVIA.
Deci (3 months ago)
when you try to prove, that most people are ignorant and stupid, but you use miles... OH THE IRONY
