    You get one question. See Community Guidelines. But come on, if you can't answer a question like #8, then you haven't given any of this any thought whatsoever.

    For your one question, I'll help you with #3. It's True.

    Definitions like "archipelago" and "isthmus" would be easier to google rather than type out the entire question!

    At least I got a laugh... Salsa ingredients?? You thought that was a geography question!!!.
