In Germany, you're missing the Ruhr Area, which is (according to your source) the biggest urban agglomeration of the country.

Nitpicking aside, this is a great quiz :) Goes beyond the usual range of countries and also visually pleasing

Berlin

Hamburg

Munich

Cologne (without Düsseldorf)

I agree that the Munich urban area has more than Stuttgart. I looked up the populations of Stuttgart and its main suburbs/attached towns, and it was only a million or so. I think they are including Heilbronn, Tübingen and Reutlingen, but there is a lot of countryside between those places and Stuttgart.

China should be Chongqing (31 m), Shanghai (24 m), Beijing (21 m), Chengdu (20 m) and Guangzhou (18 m). Xiamen is a rather small city with six million inhabitants.

Chengdu does appear to be more highly populated than Xiamen by any measure, according to multiple different web pages I found. (I've never been there, mind you.)

I was a little skeptical of the Filipino data, which didn't match what I previously thought, as well as data from sources I looked into.

I would recommend not having both Brazil and Portugal since Porto Alegre and Porto overlap. Although I would guess most people who know Porto Alegre know Porto.
