Question 11 is also not clear. (Does the area include sea surface, or it means only land area?)

Usually it only means land area....
But we can't be quite sure.

The moon question is obviously wrong.

I checked and CTG is right, it is not such a rare event. It happened/will happen between 1900-2100 seven times: in 1934, 1961, 1999, 2018, 2037, 2067 and 2094 February. February without full moon is also possible in leap years, but it happens very rarely. Next leap year February without a full moon: in 2572.

Other 13 questions remain, or Chulk please give us another one.

I was 99% sure about it, so I answered the question this way.

About moon question: I investigated further and you are right. It will be changed (please BJ, remember to send your answer to the new question).
New question is: How many National teams from OFC (Oceania) are affiliated to FIFA?

The depth of Mariana Trench is 11.034 kms according to my knowledge. I may believe if Usrin says it is 11.035 kms, he is a geologist. But it would be hard to believe the data given by Chulk.

Teeth? Insects don't have teeth... i'm surprised to see anything else than 0 as tips for question 12...

I promised to be next for CTG earlier. I'll write 13+1 questions soon.
