Since you're a stickler for correct spelling in the answers, you might also want to fix the title for the quiz, which misspells metropolitan.

You made a mistake with german cities.

You only count their population by city area. Berlin for example has

3.7m in city are but 6m in metro

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin

The same is the case with all of the other german cities and english cities.

London: 14m metro

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London

Franfurt 5.6m metro

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt

... etc

and ho chi minh is missing

Population in big cities: maybe this time is better. Nowadays too big cities emerge by acquiring small neighbour cities.
