I got 14 right, but then again I was born and raised in Louisiana (left back in 1979). I am surprised that West Monroe isn't in the top 20, as I thought there was mass exodus from Monroe across the river. And as for the 6 that I missed, I think I had only heard of 2 of them.

I have lived in Louisiana all my life and have never heard of Central. And I am amazed that it is larger than Natchitoches.

Technically, Metairie is an unincorporated bunch of county land with no city authority.

Very flawed. This quiz seems to only apply incorporated cities into the list. There are quite a few unincorporated "cities" that would ordinarily make this list.
