I accidentally typed the first 's' in 'Damascus' as 'm' and that's how I got Dammam. For once, my rubbish typing skills paid off.

Shoved in with Guangzhou or Shenzhen (less likely) to make one conurbation. Same problem with Foshan, Zhongshan, and a few other Guangdong cities.

New Delhi is not a suburb of Delhi it's the district of Delhi where the government is.

Delhi is the most populated city of India. New Delhi is the capital of India. Get your geography facts right, bro.

No, Delhi is the urban area comprising New Delhi and Old Delhi (still a very much alive and thriving city) as well as the ruins of several older cities. New Delhi was built by the British as the new capital right before they lost it at independence.

UK did not 'lose' India at Independence. India was given Independence because she deserved it. Read PM Atlee's speech in 1946: .................. It is worthwhile recording that twice in 25 years India has played a great part in the defeat of tyranny. Is it any wonder that today she claims – as a nation of 400,000,000 people that has twice sent her sons to die for freedom – that she should herself have freedom to decide her own destiny? My colleagues are going to India with the intention of using their utmost endeavours to help her to attain that freedom as speedily and fully as possible. What form of Government is to replace the present regime is for India to decide; but our desire is to help her to set up forthwith the machinery for making that decision. There we are met sometimes with the initial difficulty of getting that machinery set up. We are resolved that machinery shall be set up and we seek the utmost cooperation of all Indian leaders to do so.

Based on the current quiz stats, I'd say that at least 11 are fairly obvious. Also, if your math is right, it looks as though the quiz has been pared down significantly.

I got the 11 ones that are guessed above 50% percent and was about to give up when I suddenly remembered Douala. I have no idea where I learned about it.

Being a child of the '70's, I was brought up when Jakarta was spelled Djakarta. On this quiz, once that extra D's in your head, it's game over for the rest.

I guessed Dartmouth because I wasn't sure whether it was just a college or maybe also a big city. Lucky me. I got the answer for Tanzania that way.

Dartmouth is in Hanover, New Hampshire. As far as I know (never been farther north than Boston) that's about as rural as you can get.

There's a Dartmouth in England that's pretty small, too.

The country for the Detroit agglomeration may need to be tweaked to USA/Canada, since "Detroit" includes (according to citypopulation.de) Windsor, Ontario.

I kept typing Dhahran.

Dhahran is tiny compared to Dammam, if we're counting populations of the city proper. If looking at urban areas, then most likely Dhahran is considered part of Dammam, along with Khobar, and possibly even Qatif and Ras Tanura.

I live in Michigan north of Detroit. The current population of Detroit is under 700,000, and it has never been north of 2,000,000 even at its peak back in the day. Denver and Dallas are way off as well. The two cities' combined population doesn't even reach 2,000,000.

The quiz counts the population of the urban area, not the city proper. According to Wikipedia, the population of the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood MSA is over 2.8 million, and the population of the Dallas-Fort Worth area is about 7.1 million. These are slightly different than the citypopulation.de numbers, but definitely both big enough to make the list.
