EXTREMELY WRONG INFO! Dallas is less populous than both Houston and San Antonio, Jacksonville is the most populous city in Florida, and San Diego is more populous than San Francisco.

You're talking about cities proper, which don't really make sense when comparing city sizes. This quiz uses urban areas, which have a more consistent definition that doesn't take arbitrary administrative borders into account. For example, Dallas includes Fort Worth.
