Details and caveats:

By city proper when possible, according to citypopulation.de. Wikipedia, WorldAtlas, and GeoNames are backup sources

Some countries don't have cities, just municipalities. In those cases, we go by the municipality population.

When no reliable source has a sufficient number of cities listed, any city listed by the source will work

Because of lack of good data, Costa Rica, Fiji, and South Africa are by urban area

Great quiz

Just a thing: Salto with an "o" is in Uruguay.

Salta with an "a" is in Argentina.

When I spelled Salto, I got Argentina and didnt know why, and Salto was the first option to get trough my mind when I tryied to get Uruguay.

Nothing I tried for Malaysia worked - including Penang, Malacca, Kota Bharu, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Sandakan

Level 66
Dec 10, 2021
Hmm. I agree that does seem weird.

Unfortunately most of the ones you tried aren't in the top 8 (Penang is a state not a city; had you instead gone with its major city George Town you would have gotten it).

However Kuching absolutely should be on the list, at least as I read the table in the cited source: https://www.citypopulation.de/en/malaysia/cities/. For some reason the list of accepted answers (which only seems to have 7 cities in it??) in this quiz doesn't match the table on that website. Not sure what I'm missing either.

Delhi isnt the capital of India so why doesnt it work
+4
Level 54
Aug 25, 2021
It is...
+1
Level 66
Dec 10, 2021
It's a weird one. You're technically right but unfortunately ran into a practical issue.

Technically, yes. The capital of India is New Delhi and not Delhi, so absolutely Delhi should have worked.

However at least on this website, "Delhi" is pretty universally accepted as an acceptable type-in for the Indian capital (even if it's technically wrong) and so de-facto is considered (by JetPunk users) to be the capital.

For what it's worth, I agree with you. :-)

Should there be a caveat mentioning the lack of San Marino, Monaco, and Vatican City?
+4
Level 74
Aug 26, 2021
San Marino is included in the quiz. Vatican City, Monaco, and Singapore are not included because the entire country is within the city limits of the capital. Therefore there shouldn't be anything you are trying to type for one of those, meaning a caveat is not necessary, especially because there are already so many.
+2
Level 69
Mar 7, 2022
Still think there should be a caveat so people don't spend time thinking about whether subdivisions are included in the quiz, most especially since I don't really understand how San Marino could be included at not the other two.

Really surprised to see Montenegro and Liechtenstein with such high percentages. Though for Montenegro it could be because of Bar.

Also surprised that all the countries have at least 1%. Or perhaps answer stats defaults to 1% for those questions that no one got correct 🤔?

Bit of a weird one here: should Nuuk be accepted?

Obviously it is the capital of Greenland, but for this quiz Greenland is not a country - Greenland is part of Denmark so Nuuk is not a capital city.

Depends on if Nuuk is a city - just read Wikipedia call it a "small city"

Might actually be the only other city in Denmark that comes to mind...

Norway is just simply wrong. You have used municipalities even tho Norway has cities.

The largest cities in Norway are (Oslo excluded)

Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim, Fredrikstad, Drammen, Kristiansand, Tromssa and Sandnes

Lillestroms population is just 14 379 as Tromssa for example has populaiton of 55 057

Asken is a district and a former municipality

Bærum is a municipality also.

Regarding the information on Chile.. Puente Alto, Maipú, La Florida and Las Condes are just municipalities within the capital (santiago)... Also San Bernardino is in the US not Chile (I think you meant San Bernardo ehich is also a municipality within Santiago)... instead you could use Iquique, Rancagua, Talca, Chillan, Concepción, Temuco, Puerto Montt, etc

When I don't feel like thinking too much, I like world geography quizzes with a lot of answers.

I'm fully aware it doesn't make me cleverer or more educated but I find it satisfying when answers (usually short ones) get accepted for what I was not even trying to guess.

Just like in first subdivisions of countries quizzes, when I successively type cardinal points, "center", capital cities, some random Subsaharian Africa-sounding or zhou/dong-suffixed chinese syllables, to check how many I get in total.

Quebec might not technically be among the eight largest cities proper in Canada, but given it's historical and national significance, as well as how famous it is, it should clearly be accepted as an answer. It is one of the most famous and iconic Canadian cities, and has been since before Canada became a country in it's own right. Some of those cities on this list are closer to being part of the greater Toronto metropolitan area, while the greater Quebec City region ranks, I believe, as one of the eight largest metropolitan areas in Canada.
