  1. In the list of 10 highest mountain peaks, why Cho Oyu is listed at No. 8 when it should be at No. 6?

  2. Arabian Sea is the largest sea in the world with 3,862,000 sq kms(source: wiki) and it doesn’t get mentioned in here. Please recheck your facts.

    • Dude in that case South China Sea, Berring Sea and Sea of Okhotsk are a part of Pacific Ocean whereas Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea are a part of Atlantic Ocean. Ain’t they?

      Almost all the Seas are a part of Ocean except for some like, Mediterranean, Caspian, Red and Black Seas.

  3. Hey actually how many oceans in the world,I think its 5 but u just give 4 names is it any other is there if it is there,which one it is?
