Is this a trick question?
To which continent does Central America belong? My answer is North American continent. Is that correct?

  • geography -

    It's not really a trick question. But since Central America is Spanish speaking, it's easy to think it's part of South America.

    However, you are right. Central America is part of North America.

    Although, note that for many Europeans, there are only six continents -- with the Americas being just one continent.
