IMO, some of the answers - and their evaluation - are a little bit problematic.

  • The Great War was not a suburbian soccer match where the mothers of the players pretend not to keep score. Germany asked for an armistice. Unconditionally. Austria-Hungary, too. To stay in the picture above: that's the diplomatic equivalent of crying uncle. Yes, they have lost. Big time.
  • Italy hadn't entered the war on the side of the central forces. It choose to enter the war on side of the allied forces in 1915. The history of Italians alliances is quite complex, but it seems to be not fair to implicate that they switched sides during the war. They just picked their team late. BTW, the musings of B. Mussolini were as important to these processes as were the opinions of H. Clinton to the War in the Gulf: just another flip-flopping politician of the opposition
  • Russia: you accepted answers like
  • The Allies won the “Great War” or World War I in 1918
  • The Triple Entente won World War I.
  • The Allies (Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Japan, and United States) won World War I. and even
  • Britain, France, Russia, and America gained more power and land than any other country, but they all lost a large amount of men in World War I.

FYI: Russia wasn't represented in Versailles, it isn't counted with the victors. The triple entente was dead in 1918. And Russia lost more land and population than any other country.

For educational purposes, you should look at a map of Europe before - and after the Great War. The shifted frontiers give a clue which countries had lost - and which hadn't.
