Xiamen was a strange one to see. By any calculation, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Chengdu, Chongqing and Hangzhou should have far larger populations. Wikipedia lists Xiamen's metropolitan area as just 5 million https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_in_China_by_population_and_built-up_area

Our source use urban agglomerations. By that count, Xiamen has a population of 10 million.

Shenzhen is the fourth largest city in China and Chengdu should be sixth after Tianjin. Shenzhen is in the Guangdong province where Guangzhou is the capital but in no way is Shenzhen part of the urban Guangzhou as they are two completely different cities. Not even Dongguan, which is closer, is part of the Guangzhou. I actually live in Shenzhen and no one ever says that they are part of anything but Shenzhen, I did however read that they wanted to merge nine cities where Shenzhen and Guanzhou would be included, but for now they are separate cities.

@holypauly, similarly, no one would call St Paul and Minneapolis the same city, or Dallas and Fort Worth. They do, however, make up the same urban area, which is what these quizzes are based on.

Hong Kong is extremely densely populated, but it covers a tiny area. Has about 7 million. It's global significance comes less from its size than its status as one of the world's great trade hubs and financial centres.

I find it hard to imagine a city of 50,000,000 people, how do they manage the sewers, transport, electricity supply, hospitals, welfare, road maintenance, police etc.

Keep in mind that this is an urban agglomeration. Guangzhou's population includes nearly the entire Pearl River Delta region consisting of Dongguan and Shenzen.

Guangzhou's population does not include Dongguan and Shenzhen, they are different cities in every sense, I live here in Shenzhen and my girlfriend who is a local here is registered in Shenzhen and has nothing to do with Guangzhou. Shenzhen is more part of Hong Kong than anything as it is walking distance (divided by a boarder) in some places.

Am I a giant nerd because when I envision this gigantic agglomeration of urban sprawl it immediately makes me think of the planet Coruscant?

Look for the 'Major Agglomerations of the World' on citypopulation.de. Xiamen should be there.

Finally found it here: https://citypopulation.de/world/Agglomerations.html Along with Xiamen it includes Quanzhou and Jinjiang. A bit strange considering the size of Quanzhou and their locations. But I'm not Chinese, just looking at maps and stats. I don't know for sure.
