Answer stats are always rounded, I suppose. That said, as soon as <0.5% guess it correctly, the statistic shows that it's typed in by zero percent of the users.

Guangzhou is larger because Shenzhen is also included in the urban population of Guangzhou. Without Shenzhen Tokyo would be bigger

Please accept 'DC' for Washington D.C., and please fill in 'The Ruhr' (so we don't have to type it) because it's not a city.

Also it would be nice if you would remove the accents above some letters in some of the names, such as from Tōkyō to Tokyo etc., because their English names do not have accents.
