One question says 'Largest of the United Arab Emirates'. It does not say what largest thing they are asking for. Specific largest city, as the answer was Abu Dhabi.

The United Arab Emirates is made up of seven Emirates, so it is asking for the largest one (i.e. the largest emirate).

It's like how the United States is a collection of states. "Largest of the United States" would be Alaska.

And by the way, Abu Dhabi is not the largest city in the UAE. Dubai is.
