No, because not everyone on Earth lives on a continent. Any island smaller than Australia is not considered a continent, at least in the US view. Even if you consider a "continent" to include nearby islands -- Japan as part of Asia, Manhattan Island as part of N.A. -- there are plenty of islands that aren't included by that, like the Hawaiian Is., NZ's islands, Easter I., and the Canary Is. So such an islander could answer 7, or 0 if they consider "visiting" a continent to include living there (as I did, having been to many parts of N.A. besides my homes).
