Shouldn't Guangzhou be on since it is the biggest population in the world, or have I misunderstood the rules?

normally yes but with the source I used (geonames.org) for this quiz Guangzhou isn't the largest city in the world. Ideally I should have 'mixed' the data with the large cities from citypopulation.de since that's what is usually used on this website

Personally I would prefer if the cities were ordered on elevation (or population, that would be the same) instead of alphabetically

I prefer alphabetical so you have a small hint on your missing answers, eg you might know the very last answer you are missing begins either with L M or N

Nice and unconventional idea, an interesting angle at considering cities population.

How did you choose the increment (if any) or intervals for elevation?

Thanks!

no increment, I used the data from the website (I am not sure I understood your question)
