Euro Geography Quiz #2 - How Well Do You Know Europe?

http://www.fodors.com/community/euro...m#last-comment

My first quiz question (see link before) was met with derision, confusion and
and fault finding - all justified IMO - see here is the 2nd quiz question - I'll try to make this one absoutely crystal clear:

Euro Geography Quiz #2:

What continent is Europe a part of?

Stay tuned for #3 coming soon!

Good luck!

Nope wrong answer - guess again! The winner gets a free trip to Europe (not including air fare, accommodations, transportation and meals and incidentals also not included!)

Europe is not part of any continent. It is a continent!

Well, now you made me look this up. According to the National Geograhic:

"By convention there are seven continents: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and Antarctica. Some geographers list only six continents, combining Europe and Asia into Eurasia. In parts of the world, students learn that there are just five continents: Eurasia, Australia, Africa, Antarctica, and the Americas.

So, I'll just give myself a correct. It's tough being a teacher Pal.

PQ…Thanks, but I have to watch your friend Steve Fisher (who recently was presented with the prestigious John R. Wooden Legends of Coaching Award) and my SDSU Aztecs battle against the dreaded AZ Wildcats tonight in the Maui Classic. Happy Thanksgiving!

How did you manage to get Flanner to agree to allow these stupid colonists to actually stay in that shed on the back of the property in the Cotswolds for free, Pal?

Italians count five continents: Europe, Africa, Asia, America, and Oceania.

We are definetely not Eurasia.
Eurasia is used as a term in geography or geology like in the Eurasian landmass or such.
But it has no relevance in describing the continent in everyday language when you asked a German, Italian or Spaniard.
Though the borders are merely by convention, of course.
