    Why the question mark on # 5?

  • Literacy - ,

    Read my post just above your last one.

    I will go with “B” and get back to you when I get back the results.

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, please tell us the answer. I agree with Writeacher that Australasia is not a continent -- and neither is South Africa.

  • Literacy - ,

    I’m confused. Are you saying that none of the choice is correct?

  • Literacy - ,

    Ms. Sue is right. Among your choices, only Australia and North America are continents. South Africa is a nation. Australasia seems to be some geographers' designation of a geographical region.

    Very strange answer choices there!

    5. Geographically, Guam is part of what Continent? Guam is North America, Because its a U.S. Common Wealth State. I would go with North America. :) Even tho it's close very close to Asia.
