British population numbers are weird. Let's not overthink it. Leeds fits. It has five letters. The answer is fine. Remember, the "city" of London only has a population of a few thousand if we're going to be super technical.

How many people outside of Wales know Welsh? I bet a vast majority of non-Welsh UK citizens don't know the Welsh language.

^This. Welsh is one of those delightfully quirky languages (in my American-centric opinion) that fewer and fewer people speak, even in it's native land. I watch a lot of Welsh rugby, and I couldn't remember it, shame!

I'm Welsh and I speak and understand it. More and more children are now learning Welsh, which is great and the only way of keeping alive one of the oldest languages in Europe, if not the world, which is still being spoken.

I may not know Welsh, but I know the name for Wales. The emergence of Plaid Cymru and mentions in Doctor Who probably helped.

According to the data, those of Celtic ancestry in Scotland and Cornwall are more similar to the English than they are to other Celtic groups. People from Cornwall have a Celtic heritage, genetically they are much, much more similar to the people elsewhere in England than they are to the Welsh for example, people in South Wales are also quite different genetically to people in north Wales, who are both different in turn to the Scots. We did not find a single genetic group corresponding to the Celtic traditions in Britain." ........ http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31905764

It's from the early English weallas, which means foreigner. The same root is behind Wallonia - the French speaking part of the low countries so similarly foreign to Germanic speakers. Same thing for the Vlachs in the Balkans.

Me too, partly because almost the entire world measures altitude in meters. I was figuring La Paz at about 3,900 and Sucre - less sure - at about 2,700, which I thought would be almost perfect for the clue. Took me awhile.

I could see it being a landform, but it is where a river meets the sea, rather than being formed by a river meeting the sea.

If you want a five letter city in South Korea, why not just go with Seoul? And Wuhan? I don't keep a handy list of medium-sized Chinese cities.. It may be bigger than London and New York, but if the quizmaster themself had to pick it out of a list, then it's not really a fair question (and 93% would agree!)

I find it very fair. Jetpunk is like drugs -- you always want harder and harder stuff to get your fix. Biggest cities and capital cities no longer do it for me. I liked the questions for Busan and Wuhan here, but I've built up a tolerance to capital and largest cities.
