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

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

  8. 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!
