Thanks to the creator of the original Category Elimination quizzes, Stewart, for helping me make this!

Dublin has a population of 1.37 million, meaning it is far from being one of the 250 largest cities (the only ones which were included on this quiz). The smallest city included, as stated in the caveat, has a population of 2,125,000.

I didn't get the city I live in (Melbourne) because my house and the rest of my suburb is at an elevation of ~50 m above sea level and as such it never occurred to me that Melbourne could be the answer.
