The solely viable reason you have is that the Americas are greater. So you may have picked an arbitrary measurement restrict as your defining characteristic of a continent, as per Per’s suggestion. Your argument ignores the truth that the Americas are also a separate landmass.
Oceania is the smallest continent on the basis inhabitants if Antarctica is excluded as there is not any inhabitants estimates for Antarctica by UN . Now I reside in USA and my husband noticed that I was speaking with my daughter about 6 continents. We needed to find out that folks in several international locations have been educated totally different and looks like everybody is correct who think there are 6 or 7 continents. But I refer to 6, because Eourope and Asia is one entire landmass. I even have by no means accepted the arguments that Australia just isn’t continent unless all the islands of Oceania are included with it and that Australia itself is an island.
