What did you have as the answer for the Largest Island ?
Greenland is the only acceptable answer, is it not?



Correct but I can just imagine people being annoyed if they had put Australia which while surrounded by water and not connected to any significant landmass and bigger than Greenland is not geographically considered an island.
But Australia is considered a continental landmass, or a ****inental one. Nobody should get annoyed with facts.
