I was going to comment on how Weston isn’t here, but I checked your source and it isn’t there either. You can see that it has more people than some other towns on your list here, and I don’t know if any other cities are missing (for example I’m near certain Greenfield should be on here) so another, potentially better, source is here.

I'd like to look at your source, but your link didn't work.

You can see that Weston has more people than some of your other cities here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weston,_Massachusetts

Yeah, that is strange. I trust citypopulation.de more than Wikipedia, so I may leave the answers as they are.

Yes, if this was a quiz about large international cities, I would agree, citypopulation.de is more accurate than wikipedia. However, this is not a question of how many people Weston (or other towns) have. This is a question of whether or not Weston exists. Being from the area, I can assure you that it most certainly does! Another problem I found out about citypopulation.de is that it includes things that are not towns. Cochituate is by no means a town, it is a neighborhood of Wayland (which, by the way is another town that should be on here, but citypopulation.de claims it doesn't exist). I'm not saying you have to redo the quiz, as remaking a 100 question quiz is no small task, but if you want it to be even mildly accurate you really should. Wikipedia sources there data directly from the US Census, which is a perfectly trustworthy source (and it acknowledges that Weston exists)!

I'm sure Weston exits, so I'll add it to the quiz, but there are census-designated places that aren't cities or towns. Like I live in a town that isn't classified as a city or town but still has a name and has it's own limits.

I'd remove town from a lot of these, I don't think anybody uses the word "town" when referring to these locations.
