I see only 9 (counting Nuuk and Salt Lake which are disputable). Sao Tome and Principe is the country, the question about Chad involves a capital, but that would still be less than half...

'The biggest little city in the world'???? Seems a very bloated claim! Why? A lot of other little cities seem far more globally important than that one.

I agree. A good quiz apart from this question which only people from the US are likely to know. I tried "Rock" to no avail!

Yeah, Reno is not even on the map for me. But now I know something new, so I'm OK with it.

It's a common nickname for the place. Nicknames don't have to be literally true. You think Paris, the City of Light, is literally the brightest city in the world? I'm not American, I knew it. And now you do too. Not such a bad thing.

It's a city in Nevada, in the United States. The clue is its nickname, basically implying it is a much more bustling and exciting place than its relatively small population would make you think.
