Metro areas are such an unhinged measurement. Calling Prescott bigger than Flagstaff because an 18,000 square mile chunk of desert has slightly fewer people than a different 8,000 square mile chunk of desert makes basically no sense. Meanwhile, Daphne, AL (a de-facto suburb of Mobile, about a 10 minute drive away) counts as its own metro area for reasons.

(This is not a criticism of the quiz, it's a criticism of the Census bureau surveying the population of counties and then presenting the data as though it reflects city populations)

Daphne is like 30 minutes from Mobile and on the other side of a major bay.

Melbourne should be accepted in addition to Palm Bay. A few others as well.
