I think he's correct. "Xinxiang" (新乡) is a city, "Xinjing" (新疆)is the province

I set myself the goal of getting everything over 5 million this time around. Zhengzhou and Wenzhou were my downfall. It amazes me that China has so many massive cities that metropolises as big or bigger than Sydney or St Petersburg can fly under the radar.

If anyone is interessted; if you add up all these numbers you get to a total of 1.000.360.000 people living in these 200 cities with an average of 5.001.800 people per city. Yes, I know I'm a numbers geek.

If you type in random sequences of letters that end in -zhou, you're bound to get almost 25% of Chinese cities. Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Wenzhou, Lanzhou, Zhengzhou, Changzhou, Quanzhou, Fuzhou, Suzhou...

How is so that Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg are valid answers in both "biggest cities in Asia" and "biggest cities in Europe" quizes?
+1
Level 74
Jan 22, 2020
Because they're right on top of the "border".
+1
Level 71
Oct 4, 2019
Yes. I miised Yekaterinburg and Chelyabinsk AND Istanbul because I'd just got them in the European quiz. They can't realistically be in both!!
+2
Level 74
Jan 22, 2020
They can, because they're on what we define as the "border". Istanbul is on both sides of the Bosphorus and the Russian cities are located within the Ural mountain "border".
