Dear China We here at Jetpunk love to take quizzes about large cities, but you have too many. You are making these quizzes harder. So China, please rearrange 1.3 Billion people so that we may have some easier quizzes. Thanks, Jetpunk

There are*. As you are referring to big cities in China, it is plural so you should use the term 'are' instead of 'is'. Also, the 'C' in China is capitalised as it is a proper noun.

Also, the word is much*, not 'many'. The 'big cities' you are referring to are count nouns, which means they can be counted, in contrast to 'mass nouns', which cannot be counted, such as water, money, air etc.

How did you come up with 6.95 million for Toronto? According to the 2011 Census, the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area had a population of 5,583,064. The Greater Toronto Area had a population of 6,054,191. Even if you include the unofficial Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, the population of both metro areas was still only 6,574,140.

For guessing Chinese cities it's helpful to just memorize common prefixes and suffixes for China city names and then play mix and match...

I do that, but it didn't help much on this one. I knew one was Tian-something, but I couldn't get Tiananmen Square out of my head. Never heard of the second Chinese city.

American "metropolitan areas" exaggerate "urban" population over such an enormous area full of rural area and distinctly separate urban settlements you'd think we were looking at equally silly statistics of Chinese city limits.
Yes, Tampa, I'm looking at you because I've looked at you in person and it's not impressive.

This is true to some degree. Although there is some sort of rationale. It's based on commuting, which is generally done over a longer distance in the U.S. due to car culture.

That makes a lot of sense. Americans are used to driving long distances. I know many who commute upwards of 90 minutes every day in each direction to get to work or school. And American cities are so spread out with so many living in distant suburbs that it feels normal to drive 40 minutes or an hour to get somewhere.

Compare this to attitudes I regularly encounter overseas, where people are not as dependent on cars or don't have them, and it seems like people have a much lower threshold for what they consider to be "far away." I've had this conversation so many times with people in other countries: "why don't you come over?" "no! It's so far!" "what? you can walk here in 15 minutes or get here by taxi in 5! What are you talking about??" "nooo. It's faaar." The only place I've been that is similarly spread-out and car-centric is probably Saudi Arabia.

Before someone takes offense at the above characterization: I never said it's like this in *your* country.

What's really weird is Taizhou which apparently didn't make this list. Citypopulation.de does list Taiyuan as being bigger but Wikipedia (yeah I know) has Taizhou as significantly bigger in terms of prefecture-level city total population. Weird thing is that the Wikipedia article cites back to Citypop and both cite back to the 2010 census so ... (shrugs).
