Which is the source? According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_in_Germany_by_population Germany has only 4 cities above 1 million, UK has only 4 urban areas (not cities) above 1 million....

The source is citypopulation.de. The numbers I used previously were a little outdated so I now updated it with the latest figure as of 1 July 2014. Two more countries now join the list. Regarding the Germany city population, your wiki page refers to city proper population. Refer to this on how city population is usually defined: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World%27s_largest_cities

Most of the information in this quiz is not true. It is missing many countries, and some of the cities listed do not have 1 million inhabitants. Maybe, the creator may of used a fake site, or, is not researching any information in populations.

people in the comments not looking at the source after taking the quiz are Hanoi-ing. The source is widely accepted by top Jetpunk Users. if you are smart enough to be level 43, you can check before you comment. You are going off other sources. i believe in you.You can tho

As you see, this quiz is inconsistent. Despite the title "5 or more cities", what they count are urban areas, not cities.

That's wild that Philippines has over 100 million people but fewer than 5 cities over 1 million, but a country like Morocco has more than 5

Neat quiz! Maybe it's just me but I think it would be better if you had a little hint column that told you what continent the country belongs to.

Or Bangladesh. Although cities might not be easy when your whole country is a river delta.

Turkiye -> Turkey

Is it on purpose that countries with the same number of cities are not sorted alphabetically?

Turkïye is missing an umlaut, but it is the correct name for the country. It's not JetPunk standard, but it still accepts either.

Please use automatic type-ins. Accepting US always throws me off. United States is also missing the type-in "America". United Kingdom is missing some type-ins - GB, for example.
