Actually, the Caspian Sea is the world's largest lake. :-?

I understand this, but this teaser asks which of the two they are discussing is the largest. I didn't want to include the Caspian Sea because it is called a "Sea". The other two lakes are recognised as being the largest, too. :D

8) I hate agreeing with other people but the second comment seem more accurate in that Caspian Sea should Never be considered a Lake for its very name indicates a totally different type of Water Body. Secondly, The word Largest seems to imply circumference or the width of an object and not its depth, but it's a Great Teaser and that is our real purpose... I enjoyed this teaser. 8)

Actually Marple is correct because even though it is called the Caspian Sea it in fact fits the definition of a lake

Ok, first of all, I agree that the Caspian Sea is larger and could be considered a "lake", however it does not have the word 'lake' in its name and so could therefore be confusing. I understood the concept of the teaser, how one would cover more area but one would hold more water, but I didn't know which was gonna be which. :-? :wink: :lol:
