Missed a few, but I would never have got places like Chongqing, due to the fact of the spelling anf that I'd never heard of them! Seen as the average score is 6, 9 out of 22 isn't that bad!

In the old days it was spelled Chungking and there's still a brand of Chinese food in the grocery stores called Chun King which helps me remember it.

Changsha and Changchun don't sound familiar. Changzhou does, but maybe just because Chang- and -zhou are so common in Chinese city names. The other ones I've definitely heard of, though.

Changchun is the capital of Jilin province in NE China/Manchuria, and it used to be the capital of the Japanese puppet state "Manchukuo", which placed the previously disposed emperor "Puyi" back on the throne.

Chengdu and Chongqing are important cities that everyone should learn. The other three Chinese cities are minor.

Great quiz. But, I'm Brazilian, live near Campinas (Really near and studied there), and I may say again here in Jetpunk that the city has about 1.1 mil inhabitants, not that number above. There are so manny bigger cities in Brazil. Again, great quiz.

According to both Wikipedia and the source website you listed, Cleveland and Cincinnati both fall well short of 2 million inhabitants in their urban areas.

I think this data is including the greater metropolitan area as part of the city, which is why the numbers seem off. Still, I don't understand how a city like Charlotte (with almost 900,000 people within its city proper, alone) didn't make this list when Cincinnati and Cleveland have far fewer in the city proper. Hell, Columbus has nearly twice the number of people in its city proper as Cincinnati and Cleveland. I feel like the website from which the QM got the data is misleading. It also says Pittsburgh has more than 2 million people, which would only be true if you included every person within a two hour drive from the city limits.

Chongqing= at least 10 million in city proper. 31 mil roughly in urban area. As ninjastar9 said, Charlotte has about 3 mil, Cincinnati has maybe 1 mil, and Cleveland just hit 1.5 million.
