Paris worked for a long time, then London until I got to the capital ones... lots of time lost there. I tried several including Cairo (which on the bad side is a capital and on the good side led me to the right answer). Great quiz!

This quiz is pretty wrong. Bangalore and Kolkata do not speak Hindustani dialects and fit the bill.

Hindi and Urdu are widely spoken in both cities, but are not the most widely spoken or official language in either city. I think the clue is worded ambiguously.

Cologne worked for a number of the categories, but not the last one. It's not the largest city in Germany, so if it met the other criteria, it should have been ok at the end.
