I've updated this quiz from the 2001 Census data to be the 2001 Municipalities. Many large cities are part of larger conglomerations with a larger hub, so not every city that one would expect is going to show up, as is the nature with cities.

None of the townships mentioned are recognised as cities. theay are all situated within the city limits of actual cities. Bad quiz!

This was based off the 2001 census and some townships were larger than better-known cities. It has now been changed to municipalities.
