The clue said city, not district. The whole population thing has got totally out of hand.

British population numbers are weird. Let's not overthink it. Leeds fits. It has five letters. The answer is fine. Remember, the "city" of London only has a population of a few thousand if we're going to be super technical.

95% knew Wales, but less than a quarter know how to say it in Welsh. I find that contrast amusing.

How many people outside of Wales know Welsh? I bet a vast majority of non-Welsh UK citizens don't know the Welsh language.

^This. Welsh is one of those delightfully quirky languages (in my American-centric opinion) that fewer and fewer people speak, even in it's native land. I watch a lot of Welsh rugby, and I couldn't remember it, shame!

Do the majority of the Welsh even know Welsh?

^Probably not, due to a long time of England persecuting the Celtic languages.

I'm Welsh and I speak and understand it. More and more children are now learning Welsh, which is great and the only way of keeping alive one of the oldest languages in Europe, if not the world, which is still being spoken.

I may not know Welsh, but I know the name for Wales. The emergence of Plaid Cymru and mentions in Doctor Who probably helped.

duolingo.com, a website that teaches people of many different languages whatever language they want to learn (be it spanish, dutch, or even esperanto!), is currently making a welsh course.

A welsh course which it hopes many will sign up for, [hopefully] massively increasing the amount who learn the Welsh language.

"Landform formed when a river meets the sea" - Mouth?

I don't think a "mouth" is considered a landform, but it's a good thought.

I could see it being a landform, but it is where a river meets the sea, rather than being formed by a river meeting the sea.

If you want a five letter city in South Korea, why not just go with Seoul? And Wuhan? I don't keep a handy list of medium-sized Chinese cities.. It may be bigger than London and New York, but if the quizmaster themself had to pick it out of a list, then it's not really a fair question (and 93% would agree!)

Because that's the way we like it in the UK and USA, although metrics are being used more and more in the UK (unfortunately).
