Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The Zambezi is the fourth largest of its kind in Africa. Which of these natural phenomena is it?

Answer: River

The Zambezi river rises in Zambia before flowing through Angola, and along the borders of Namibia and Botswana. It then forms part of the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe before crossing Mozambique. It empties into the Indian Ocean and is the largest African river to flow into that ocean.

Its most famous area is Victoria Falls, on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, named by the explorer David Livingstone in honour of the British queen.
2. Located in Russia, and the largest of its kind in Europe, is Ladoga. Which of these is it?

Answer: Lake

As well as being the largest lake in Europe, Lake Ladoga is the fourteenth largest, by area, in the world. It is situated in the north west part of Russia, near Saint Petersburg. It is fed by several rivers, including the Svir, Volkhov and Syas and drains into the Gulf of Finland. Ladoga is home to many different types of fish and also has its own species of ringed seal, called the Ladoga seal.
3. In Nicaragua one of the big tourist attractions is named Somoto. Which of these four options is it?

Answer: Canyon

The Somoto Canyon is situated in northern Nicaragua near the city of Somoto. The tourist potential has led to the development of boat trips, hiking trails and horse riding activities to enable visitors to see the natural beauty of the area. The canyon was 'discovered' only in 2004 by a group of Czech and Nicaraguan scientists, although it is believed to have been formed between 5 million and 13 million years ago by the Coco River. The local inhabitants refer to it as 'Namancambre' or 'the structure'.
4. Scotland boasts Ben Nevis as its largest example of which of these?

Answer: Mountain

Ben Nevis is not only the highest mountain in Scotland, it is also the highest in the British Isles at 4,409 feet above sea level. It is located in the Grampian mountains in the Highlands region of Scotland. The Gaelic word for mountain is 'beinn' which has been anglicised to 'ben' to refer to many of the mountains of Scotland. The mountain is a popular attraction for climbers with the first climb to be recorded attributed to James Robertson in 1771.
5. Windermere is the largest of which of these geographical features to be found in England?

Answer: Lake

Situated in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, Windermere was formed by glacial action around 13,000 years ago. It is a ribbon lake, being long and narrow, due to the path of the glacier. The derivation of its name is believed to be a combination of old Norse (Vinandr) and old English (mere), meaning Vinandr's Lake. Windermere is popular as a tourist destination with many steamers operating on the lake and a ferry crossing midway which saves a fifteen mile journey around the lake for road traffic.
6. A visit to Matterhorn on the borders of Switzerland and Italy will find you looking at which of these?

Answer: Mountain

The Matterhorn is the German name for the mountain, which is called Mont Cervin in French and Monte Cervino in Italian. The mountain is 14,690 feet high, and it is one of the highest in the Alps. The German name is derived from 'matte', meaning meadow, and 'horn', meaning peak. The Matterhorn was first climbed in 1865 by Edward Whymper and remains one of the most demanding climbs in the Alps. The mountain overlooks the city of Zermatt in Switzerland and has helped the city become a popular tourist destination.
7. The Irrawaddy is the largest of which geographical feature in Myanmar?

Answer: River

The river is the country's most important commercial route, and was named 'The Road to Mandalay' in the poem written by Rudyard Kipling. There is evidence to show that the river was used for transport as far back as the sixth century, and the delta is a major rice producing region. The river empties into the Andaman Sea, which is part of the Indian Ocean.
8. One of the geographical features of Argentina is Aconcagua. Which of these is it?

Answer: Mountain

Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the whole of the Americas with a height of 22,841 feet. It is part of the Andes range and is situated near the border between Argentina and Chile. Aconcagua is known as 'the stone sentinel' and is one of the easier mountains to climb, with climbers able to walk to the summit.

Despite this, it claims many lives as the danger can be underestimated due to the apparent ease of the ascent.
9. As well as being the name of a province of Canada, Saskatchewan is also the name of which geographic feature located mainly in the same province?

Answer: River

The river flows through Saskatchewan and Manitoba before emptying into Lake Winnipeg. The name of Saskatchewan comes from the Cree language, and translates as 'swift flowing river'. The river was an important route for transport in the fur trade and is the seventh longest in Canada. It powers hydroelectric plants in the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan itself.
10. Situated near Amarillo in Texas is the Palo Duro, the second largest of its type in the USA. Which of these is it?

Answer: Canyon

The canyon was formed by a fork of the Red River, called the Prairie Dog Town Fork. At around 120 miles in length and up to 997 feet deep in places, it is second only to the Grand Canyon of Arizona in size and is often referred to as the 'Grand Canyon of Texas'.

The canyon was first mapped in 1852 by an American military team and it was the site of the final battle of the Red River War in 1874 when the native Americans were driven from the area.
