Hi;

The Answers, II 82 and II 83, are correct. Neat work, bobbym!

II 84. The Sahara ('the Greatest Desert') is the largest hot desert and the third largest desert in the world after Antarctica and the Arctic. State the area in square kilometers or square miles (± 10% of the actual value).

II 85. The Yangtze River, known in China as the Cháng Jiāng or the Yángzǐ Jiāng, is the longest river in Asia and the third-longest in the world.  The river is the longest in the world to flow entirely within one country. It drains one-fifth of the land area of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and its river basin is home to one-third of the country's population. The Yangtze is the sixth-largest river by discharge volume in the world. What is the length of the river in kilometers or miles (± 10% of the actual value)?
