Xiamen Island accounts for only 1.5 million people. Majority of Xiamen population lives on Continental China.

Mumbai's Urban area includes Thane which is not on Island. So, Mumbai also disqualifies.

NYC has a borough called The Bronx which is on Mainland.

Montreal's Urban Areas is beyond the Island. It is also not completely on Islands.

As said before, the quiz is based on Urban Area, which include some part on mainland. Hence they both don't qualify

Nice quiz. You might want to fix up the borders a bit, though.
