Are you saying that Santiago is closer to Kinshasa than Buenos Aires is or that Buenos Aires has a population < 5,000,000? I would suggest that neither is true.

The source gives Buenos Aires' population as 2,891,082, because "The population statistics given refer only to the official capital area, and do not include the wider metropolitan/urban district." Should probably put in the instructions or caveats that this is by "city proper" population.

Nice quiz though. Great idea!
