Letter C Continent

A large landmass on Earth. Up to seven continents can be identified which are...
North America
South America

(Some parts of the world may consider Europe and Asia to be a single continent)

In order to include all the countries of the world, places which are not part of a large landmass may be included in a continent. The best example is Oceania where many Pacific Islands and New Zealand are included with the large landmass of Australia.
