How many countries have a territorial claim in the continent of Antarctica?
The right answer is 7.
They are Australia, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, France, UK and Norway.
What are your thoughts on this subject?

Under international law, no country has a right to the land and resources of Antarctica. The continent is available to all for scientific research only

Good question, poor explanation.

The international geophysical treaty forbids territorial claims in Antarctica. The answer should be zero.

This must be the most concise answer ever given on this site. Reading the link given, it seems that there are 7 or maybe 8 claims which are recognised (or not) by various other counties.

0 should be the number, because no one can live there independently.

7 is the correct answer. The claims are made BUT...they are not recognized.

I agree with Ken Brown , zero is the correct answer, not 7 like they is the correct answer not the three I gave as an answer.
