Surely Prague has to be larger than Pilsen

Level 75

That's why Prague is on the quiz and not Pilsen.

I've made a mistake and originally Pilsen was on the quiz, thanks for pointing it out. I'll fix the dot soon

Isn't Philadelphia larger than Phoenix?
+1
Level 72
Mar 5, 2021
Phoenix is larger by about 100k in city proper population
+2
Level 71
Mar 5, 2021
Okay, then you need to change the wording in your instructions from "urban settlement" to clarify that you're referring to city proper, because Philadelphia is bigger than Phoenix on every other account (urban area, metropolitan area, combined metropolitan area), Philadelphia is bigger.
