5/5, but only because the first answer couldn't be exact location nor continent. The answer proposed as right isn't right, either. Relative location is bearing and range - i.e. a location expressed relative to another location, using a measure (distance away - range) and direction (vector, or bearing in degrees) heading away from that other location to the location in question. So Canada is due North - 0 degrees from the United States and borders it, so the distance (range) is 0. And San Francisco is 2,565 miles from New York City, at a bearing of 265 degrees (approximately due West). Absolute location references a commonly-accepted standard positional system, like Latitude and Longitude. Once again, Quizzclub gets it almost, but not quite, right. At least this test showed answers, for a change. There are two schools of thoughts on oceans - 5 and 7; when 7, the North and South Pacific and N/S Atlantic are considered separate - as they are on most maps; after all, there's really only one ocean (the world ocean), because they are all connected. But if you're separating them on some isolable criterion, the North and South oceans really don't mix, and circulate independently of one another.

Anne Tisdell, ? I had to ask - what did you think represented the equator on the map? Or the Greenwich (Pirme) Meridian?

4/5 I did not agree with the choice on the equator and Prime Meridian as the correct answer had very little information on their importance beyond the Equator being a horizontal line and the Prime Meridian being a vertical line. JEEZ! I thought that none of the answers were correct!

Chris Brown, Did you know that the islands of New Zealand and some of the PacificIslands are part of a now sunken continent that sunk millions of years ago? I am currently reading a book about it called "Zealandia, a Continent Revealed?" by an NZ geophysicist, Hamish Campbell. I think the idea was first put forward by the 19th Century German geologist Alfred Wegener, who theorised continent drift. I have a book co-authored by an NZ geologist, Hamish who is a friend of mine called "Zealandia, a Continent Adrift". If you can obtain a copy, I think you will find it extremely interesting.

Jacques Andre Sterk, No, the answer is correct. The National Geographic recently officially recognized the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica as #5.
