Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz [2-6-2022] Question: Oymyakon has a strong claim to being the northern ‘Pole of Cold.’ What’s that?

The given options are as follows:

Oymyakon’s claim may be strongest: The Siberian town has a verified low-temperature record of minus 89.9 degrees Fahrenheit set in 1933—though if local lore and a Soviet-era monument are accurate, the true record low was notched a decade earlier at minus 96.2.
