The Question: The puffins pictured here are spending the warm season on an island chain a few hundred miles from Norway, known for its wool. What is it?

A Falkland Islands
B Faroe Islands
C Shetland Islands

The Shetland Islands are the northernmost part of Scotland (and the United Kingdom as a whole). They’re closer to Norway than to Edinburgh. The Shetlands are renowned for their sheep and prized wool, an important resource on these cold, rugged islands—but the puffins seem to like them just fine.

The correct answer is Shetland Islands.
