Now, this is interesting. It is a long time - a very long time since I was at school and studied geography but even then I could probably only name the highest mountain on earth.
However, there being seven continents, what is the name of the highest summit on each of them? I have to admit I could not name them all by any means - and it was only educated guesses which led me to the answers for the ones I did get.
I had no idea at all what was the highest peak in South America (see picture, right). I am unsure as to whether I had ever heard of it before. Of course, I am not going to tell you what it is here - click the link to find out for yourself.
As a European I should be thoroughly ashamed that I did not know the name of the highest mountain in Europe!
Fortunately, JK Kristie has come up with this cool list - as well as some truly amazing photographs, with which to give us a gentle reminder of what should be general knowledge.
