15 of these rivers are not entirely in the USA, 14 are not in the US at all, and 11 are not even in the Americas. So maybe something else is to blame for your finding this quiz difficult.

One very massive and populous country with many famous rivers and many well-known cities on those famous rivers. So, not really.

There are however other rivers such as the Amazon, Po and Indus which could be included instead of having so many American rivers

There's only one city on the Amazon that anybody has ever heard of before. There are several very well-known cities on the Po River, but the river itself is not that famous. The Indus River would be a good inclusion, though. Karachi, Peshawar, Rawalpindi...

Kolkata is NOT on the Ganges, it's on a tributary called the Hugli River, the main course of the Ganges flows to the north of the city into Western Bangladesh. FYI

Could swap that out for Varanasi... that would be a pretty obvious pick for cities on the Ganges.

I'm a bit on the fence on whether the White Nile, as it's known in Juba, is already THE Nile, or if it only becomes THE ile when it joins with the Blue Nile in Khartoum. The White Nile does have the bigger water flow over a year, but the Nile wouldn't be the Nile, and would never have produced Egypt (a "gift from the Nile") without the annual flood that is provided by the Blue Nile...

Isn't the Missouri a tributary of the Mississippi? If other rivers are grouped together with their tributaries (White Nile and Nile, Hugli and Ganges) shouldn't Missouri be too? For consistency.

Don't see how any rivers are "grouped together" as main stem versus tributary - unless the quiz has been changed. Seems like the rivers were picked as being "major" rivers along which there are at least three larger cities. The Missouri certainly qualifies - especially since it's longer the the main (Mississippi) river, though only by about 20 miles. Note that the quiz also includes the Arkansas River, another tributary of the Mississippi - at over 1400 miles long, it fits the bill too.

The Rio de la Plata is basically just a bay of the Atlantic into which the Uruguay and Parana flow. I've always thought it odd that it gets named a river. Though it is a fairly significant feature, lending its name to Argentina (Plata being the Spanish for silver, Argentina being derived from the Latin for the same - argentum) and apparently being the world's largest river mouth.

Rotterdam is considered to be on the Meuse, not on the Rhine. Hard to tell the difference I agree, but still. Rotterdam is often dubbed 'de Maasstad' (the Meuse City) so.

I still can't get over the fact that Massena is considered a big enough city to be recognized for having the St. Lawrence flowing through it. Surely there are bigger and more well known cities than that.

no, because actually Paranà and Uruguay rivers end where rio de la plata begins. though it is questionable if the "rio de la plata" (despite its name) is technically a river at all.

Isn't Rhein supposed to be a type-in for Rhine? I could've sworn it's like that on other quizzes.
