I think most of the ones I missed were cities in Argentina/Chile/Uruguay/Brazil that I hadn't heard but rarely before. and two in Australia that I wasn't aware had more than a million people.

Checking my map, it seems to be about 500 meters further north than Rio, so it would probably the city to include if the list were one name longer.

They are both 22.91 °S. The cities overlap so much latitude-wise that you could consider either further north, depending where in each city you count from.

The earth is really top-heavy. There are no more of these large cities farther South than 38.00o degrees. ........ Athens is 38.00o degrees North, yet look at all the cities of over a 1,000,000 North of Athens.

That's because to the south of 38.00S is predominantly ocean, whereas to the north of 38.00N is mainly land.

It doesn't, actually. The quiz uses urban area population, not city proper population. If we don't count the surrounding cities, Santos has circa 420,000 people only.

The source jetpunk tends to use (citypopulation.de) usually goes by urban aglomeration populations. So even though FLORIPA has more than 1 million people on its metropolitan area, the source caps only the population inside the island, because it's separated from the rest by oceanic water.

In stead of having a combined "Johannesburg/Pretoria" you should have separate entries for Johannesburg, Tshwane (including Pretoria) and Ekurhuleni. Also, please accept eThekwini for Durban.
