True, and citypopulation.de does list it as a separate "urban area" with a population of 1763336. If the quiz is going to count "agglomerations" rather than "urban areas", it should say so.

I mean, if Scotland weren't part of the UK, it would be odd for them to have had a referendum on independence from the UK in 2014 (which was unsuccessful).

It’s literally in the name of the country. United Kingdom Of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Scotland is in Great Britain.

I always think of Murmansk as a major city. Its the largest arctic city in the world, but at less than 400K people I guess it isn't big enough.

Neptune777, you entirely miss Antimony's point. He is kind-of correct since Tanger is what it's called in French, the colonial language. Tangier (or sometimes Tangiers) is an English term, not generally used locally. The alternatives you gave are simply mis-spellings; Antimony's is not.
