Loved this quiz. Surprisingly difficult! I daresay strictly speaking London ought to appear in both the eastern and western hemispheres, although that might make it a bit less interesting eh...

The 5th biggest city in the world by urban area is Delhi, not New Delhi (New Delhi is only a Delhi's district)
