find the oldest active geocache in EITHER five states OR five provinces OR five countries. No, you can't use a mixture of states/provinces/countries.
A checker can use a mixture of categories, it's just up to the script writer. The problem with this cache is the separation of states and provinces as two mutually exclusive categories, which would require the checker to have a list of which countries use states and which use provinces (and also which regions defined for those countries do not count as those types, such as District of Columbia for USA). If the challenge had been stated as five states/provinces/similar OR five countries, it would be easy enough to program.
