You might want to lighten up on the Korean spellings. Pusan and Taegu are also acceptable romanizations.

It's the old romanization system. The McCune-Reischauer system was replaced in 2000, but many people (and road signs) still use the old one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revised_Romanization_of_Korean

There are not Korean letters for P and T there are Korean letters for sounds in Korean that roughly correspond to sounds in the English phonetic inventory that English speakers often represent with p, b, t, d and sometimes other letters. The most common way to transliterate those Korean letters has changed.

MUNI is the umbrella outfit that includes buses, metro, trams, everything in San Francisco. Confusingly it also operates a "Muni Metro" with 33 stations, separate from BART's 45 stations, but Muni Metro is described as light rail, which according to this quiz's instructions means they don't count.

I wondered about that, too, as Boston has well over 100 rail stops. But when you subtract the green line light rail, that leaves a bit under 60 for the other lines.

I don't know the exact definition of 'metro rail' but no one in Rome really considers Line C as part of the metro, I guess because it's 'above ground' and unconnected to Lines A and B. It looks more like a 'normal rail' except maybe the parts inside the ring road or something - see this wikipedia map. But I guess it would be too hard to check all individual cases

In my opinion, neither should be grouped together for this quiz. Guangzhou/Shenzhen are sometimes grouped together as one gigantic Pearl River Delta city, but their subway lines don't even connect. There are plans to merge them in the future though, along with a few other PRD cities.

It doesn't count because the Green Line's 66 stations are considered "Light Rail" even though they go underground and become a subway, the first subway in the U.S. Including the Green Line and BRT there are 145 stations.
