creative idea with just dots on map. China cities always the toughest in any quiz.

For once I got all of China, but missed two Indian ones and one in Pakistan. Also, great quiz!

extremely high scores, most are above 80% and even the more obscure names are 50+

I would say that's a product of people retaking the quiz.

I'd say it's more likely that most of the people taking this quiz have already taken plenty of "biggest cities" type quizes and already have a pretty good idea of which cities will be on here. For my part, I don't know every location and exact population number for all the cities - especially in China and India - but after I get a few of the regular offenders, I can pretty much guess the less common ones.

This was easier than I thought -- I was expecting more Chinese cities but they weren't too bad on this quiz.

I'm pretty sure they are accounted for in Guangzhou's metro area.

Yes, but in that case shouldn't you be able to type in Hong Kong or Shenzhen and get credited for Guangzhou?

Added Shenzhen to the type-ins. Hong Kong is not counted as part of the urban area.

Only 34? Am I missing something or was there a lot more? I checked Wikipedia, and it seemed to confirm this. Not sure what the reason for the discrepancy in the two sites is, but I destinctly remembered Harbin, Lima, Bogota, Xi'an, and a that there were more.

It says something about the people taking these quizzes when 55.4% get 100%. I doubt that most people (outside China) can name cities like Xiamen and Tianjin. Also, some of the Indian/Japanese cities are probably unknown to most people.

The problem is this quiz isn't for "normal people". Most of us taking the quiz are geography nerds so we know the cities already.

Btw I don't think Nagoya or Osaka is not known, well, especially Osaka.
