Im sorry, but Arnhem-Zuid???? Would be the same if you divided Amsterdam in just regular Amsterdam and Amsterdam- Zuid.

Actually Amsterdam Zuidoost is a town of 100.000+ within the municipality of Amsterdam, so could be added just as well. It's more common to show the population of municipalities of the Netherlands however.

As you correctly stated, Amsterdam-Zuidoost is part of the Municipality of Amsterdam and falls under its jurisdiction. The city hall is located in the centre of Amsterdam and they of course have the same mayor.

Exactly, Arnhem-Zuid is part of the municipality Arnhem, it shouldn't be there. When I saw the dot so close to Arnhem I started thinking: is Elst really that big?

I agree, Arnhem-Zuid should not be included in this quiz. Great quiz though, thank you for creating!

Zaandam is a part of the Municipality of Zaanstad, the most populous part. So these shouldn't be separate answers, you can perhaps accept both answers as "Zaanstad".

In the same way, Hoofddorp is part of the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer.

This quiz should be called 'all 50k municipalities', not cities. For example, the municipality Hardenberg has 60k inhabitants. But the main 'city' (connected built-up area) only has about 20k.

Technically, you might only want to add 'cities' in the Netherlands and not the Kingdom (so all provinces plus Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius). In my opinion, Willemstad should therefore be left out.

I totally agree with changing 'cities' into municipalities as well. Great work though, you really improved the quiz already!

In the Netherlands there are a lot of municipalities that are not a town or a city, but a larger area with multiple towns and villages. For example, Westland is a municipality with about 115,000 people, but it's largest towns are Naaldwijk and 's-Gravenzande, both home to somewhere between 22,000 and 23,000 people.

The problem is, that many of these municipalities are quite unknown to the general public, while the bigger towns are much more widely known. For example, most Dutch people have heard about the city of Drachten (44,870 people), but the municipality of Smallingerland (56,173 people), in which it's located, will probably not ring a bell to many of them.
