The majority of the Antarctic continent is covered by permanent ice and snow leaving less than 1% available for colonization by plants. Most of this ice and snow-free land is found along the Antarctic Peninsula, its associated islands and in coastal regions around the edge of the rest of the Antarctic continent.

Much better today. I only got 2 and 4 wrong and I knew them, they just wouldn't come to mind. Of course if I had gotten 3 wrong I would be driven from my country in disgrace!!!!! I also knew both parts of No. 5! I got No. 6 because it was also the year Vancouver hosted Expo and I was heading to the site (I worked there for our Provincial Government) when the news about the Challenger was announced over the loudspeaker on our rapid transit.
