It's a reasonable comment, though, seeing as Britain used to own Hong Kong, and apparently it used to be allowed to participate in the Cmmonwealth Games.

I thought the same thing but tried Hong Kong just in case

Level 82
Jun 16, 2016
yes it was part of the empire but then it became part of China. If it had retained independence that would make sense... but since it was absorbed into another country, it would be quite strange. I don't think there are any territories in the Commonwealth that are parts of other countries that are, themselves, not in the Commonwealth.

I don;t think it really does matter where youre from, in regards to your score, since they were on all the continents (only s. america is not included in this quiz, because Guyana doesnt have any cities big enough)

Nice quiz. Accepting "Dar" for Dar es Salaam is quite allowing, don't you think?

Jun 16, 2016
I like it. People in "Dar" virtually always call it "Dar."

Level 74
Jun 17, 2016
We should see more type-ins like that, if people write 'Dar', we can be pretty sure they mean Daressalaam. Maybe QM should just shorten the timers and make us type less.

Great quiz, but it should be titled 'biggest cities in the Commonwealth of Nations', the adjective 'British' was dropped from the official title decades ago...

Great quiz, though I kept forgetting I was going for Commonwealth cities as opposed to British Empire cities (I came to this directly from the Spanish Empire cities quiz). I also awkwardly forgot that Canada was a thing.

Exactly. According to citypopulation.de it also says in 2020, it says 4 mil in 2020 and most other sites like https://tradingeconomics.com/singapore/population#:~:text=Population%20in%20Singapore%20is%20expected,according%20to%20our%20econometric%20models. says it is 5.82 mil

Isn't Bangalore officially Bengaluru now? I feel like that name usually pops up as the official answer on Jetpunk
