I had one dot remaining, but only answered 38 correct: then I looked to see that the city was in the southeast: Santiago was highlighted as answered, but I had not guessed it.

How have you concluded London to be in the West when the meridian line goes straight through it? Especially given you are considering urban areas. And given that the majority of London is West of the line are you only counting the population that resides west of the line?....... how pedantic am I?...

As Greenwich is in the east of Greater London, it makes sense for London to be put into the Western Hemisphere for the purposes of this fun and light-hearted and not-to-be-taken-too-seriously quiz.

Delhi is not a city but a territory in which capital city New Delhi is, which has approximately 21.78 million people.

Delhi is not a city?

New Delhi is a district in Delhi. Delhi's administrative region is completely a part of the city with the suburbs extending into the neighbouring states of UP and Haryana. So Delhi is definitely a city while New Delhi is not. PS - I used to live in Delhi

Lagos and Bogotá are not in the same quadrants. Lagos would be in the Northeast. According to the source, Lagos is #12 in that quadrant, after Dhaka and Osaka.

Toronto (5.4M) is bigger than both San Francisco (3.3M) and Boston (4.2M) so San Francisco should be swapped with Toronto
reply

Jul 4, 2017

The 3.3M figure is only counting San Francisco and Oakland/East Bay. The actual urban area is about 7M counting San Jose and every other city in the Bay Area.
