Yes, very dumb.
That's the big problem about administrative divisions in China, we could face some "cityception" problems, with some "county-level city" (like Changshu or Yiwu) inside a "prefecture-level city" (like Suzhou and Jinhua).
The problem here, is that it creates a double standard. If we consider Changshu and Yiwu to be our definition of cities, we have to do the same about Yueqing (instead of Wenzhou), Liuyang and Ningxiang (instead of Changsha), and countless others.
On another note, the quiz is also missing one Taizhou (the one south of Ningbo) :p
It was more like state / land in the past but in the present it is more or less a suffix of prefectures / cities that used to be called ___zhou.
So yes it would be equivalent to ville, burg, grad, or whatever term of that sort nowadays
The prefecture is loosely packed though, but even in that case two county level cities (Wenling and Linhai) have over 1m population. Jiaojiang as well as parts of Luqiao and Huangyan are often considered to be Taizhou proper which should be well over 1m too.
Oh and it also has more people than Taizhou (Jiangsu). Not sure how it didn't make it.
I'm assuming the one in Jiangsu was not on that list back when this map was made.
