Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland. Seeing that Edinburgh, the second largest city, is so far behind can let you infer that Dundee will probably not be on the list. And the third largest city in Scotland is Aberdeen. Aberdeen is not on this list, so you know Dundee won't be either. Dundee has about 160,000 people.

One thing I have learned about the British by taking these quizzes, is that they make things way more confusing than they need to be. Sure, we use the imperial measurements, which is confusing versus the metric system, but I have yet to come on to one of these quizzes where there isn't tons of arguing over what is and is not a country within the UK and what is or is not a city in the UK.

I had no idea Huddersfield was that big. It's just off my radar, I think. I assumed Hull would make the list, but it turns out there are just 256,000 people there. I think it's mostly dockyards and things.
+1
level 34
Jun 23, 2015
The boundary for Hull is so small, this is why we have bad stats for everything because it doesn't include the suburbs like every other city. I live just outside of Hull technically but it is only 5 miles from the centre.

Bournemouth has a population of 183000, the figure on here is for both Bournemouth and Poole, the town nest to it.

Jun 19, 2016
The quiz says urban areas and since there is no gap between Poole and Bournemouth then it counts both under one area

Sep 12, 2017
Do people not read the name of the quiz (Urban Areas - note, not cities/towns) or the further comments or instructions, including the links? This is for urban areas clearly defined by the British government and using census data. Why bother complaining when there is a clear source?

Bummed "North Kilttown" wasn't on the list. After all, Groundskeeper Willie and Angus McLeod are from their. And that's two more people that I know of than are from some of the cities on the list that I didn't know the names of. :P

Sep 12, 2017
The quiz is based on census data and on clearly defined urban areas (there's a link for God's sake!!) - if the places you listed aren't on the quiz, then it's CLEARLY because they aren't big enough to appear on it.

York isn't actually very big - a lot of large cities in the UK didn't even a exist before the industrial revolution (or were just small towns/villages). York is an old walled city founded in Roman times. What I am more surprised about is that Bradford doesn't count as part of Leeds.
