No I consider Mongolia as part of East Asia, otherwise it'd rank 6th ahead of Omsk.

Mongolia's culture I would say is a mix of Central and East Asia. But geographically, I think it should be East Asia.

I was contemplating putting Mongolia and Xinjiang in Central Asia, but the East Asia map would look weird and what am I going to do with Tibet?

The type-in for Washington is automatic. According to the source, Cologne is a separate urban area together with Bonn and has a population of 2.1 million.

"DC" is only accepted if the answer is "Washington, D.C.", which is probably applicable in a capital city quiz. But in this case the urban area of Washington + Baltimore is much bigger than the District of Columbia.
