Kuaii, Kuai, Kawai, Kawaii, Kawasaki (), Kwai, Kawai, Keuai, Kowai, Kowii, Kevin.

I know it's not Maui, and I've eliminated the rest () and now I'm just guessing on the spelling of the last one, which I'm sure it begins with K and sounds similar to Hawaii.

Damn! I used to be good at geography.

I'm impressed because with all those attempts, you still didn't spell it correctly.

Kauai.

Too funny.

Your go.

I'm going to stick with geography because, apparently, I'm not as good at it as I thought I was/once was.
------------------------------

Norway's land area is 365,245 sq.km. The UK's land area is 241,930 sq. km.

Put these four countries in their correct order of land area, all of which fall between Norway and the UK in land area: Poland, New Zealand, Malaysia, Japan.

Norway 365, 245
...
...
...
...
UK 241,930




(All figures according to World Bank Org.)
