Oh should've gotten Enschede, it was the one that exploded. 11/15 total which kinda sucks since I used to live there. Although that was a while ago.

Arnhem is actually bigger than Apeldoorn, but this quiz ranks them by municipality, and Apeldoorn is a huge municipality

Yes, Zaanstad is not a city, it has to be Zaandam, Zaanstad is a area around Zaandam.

Zaanstad is a municipality. I'm not 100% sure of the distinction between city and municipality, but the Wikipedia data lists population by municipality.

Maybe change the name of the quiz to biggest municipalities then? So there is no confusion. Cause even if zaanstad is guessed 11% correct. Pretty sure none of those were done on peoples first try. Must have come from people trying to get them all right and retaking the quiz. I don't even think that people that live in one of the (apparently seven) cities in the region of zaanstad will have given it as an answer ;)

I was surprised den bosch/'s hertogenbosch wasn't on it either. Checked, and apparently it would ve been the next one on this list. (recent study found here https://toponderzoek.nl/2017/07/31/aantal-inwoners/) But I must add, the quizname mentions cities, zaanstad isn't a city but a collection of them, seven to be precise. The city with the highest inhabitants only has approximately 75.000 Zaandam - 76.804 Assendelft - 23.459 Krommenie (inclusief Krommeniedijk) - 17.226 Wormerveer - 11.803 Koog aan de Zaan - 11.133 Zaandijk - 8.686 Westzaan - 4.621 (source: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaanstad) Would ve been fine with having it on the list if the quiz was, biggest municipalities. But the name of the quiz contains city. (just tried to read the wikipedia entries of municipalities and city proper, things are spinning haha, even in my own language it would ve been complicated I think) Not even sure I ever heard of zaanstad, Zaandam I did know though.
