I bet a large portion of the population thinks we're insane for finding the following question fun/interesting:

"How many cities of India can you name that have an urban agglomeration population of at least 1 million people?"

No

Because Jamshedpur and Tatanagar are different

The numbers are kinda suspect, I went to citypopulation.de, your (excellent) source for population, and I found that a lot of agglomerations are not included (like Thiruvananthapuram) while some others are vastly underrated (Kochi's agglomeration is > 2 millions since at least 2011).

The points system on this site is really weird sometimes. I get 5/5 points for naming like 5 of 12 items on a grammar-related list, yet naming 32 Indian cities gets you only 4

I'm an Indian and still I missed 5 cities and God knows how I still got 5 out of 5 points. But still, I'm feeling extremely ashamed. Never knew Moradabad, Bareilly, Tiruppur, Kota and Jabalpur are so big. I've surely heard of them but never knew this.

What's the meaning of knowing the big Cities of China, America, Japan, UK and France when I don't know the largest cities of my own Country.

This quiz opened my eyes. Thanks a lot

LOL missing 5 cities on here is really not a big deal when there's like over 50. And all the cities you listed are all pretty obscure. I feel like most of the ones after the top 25 (#25 is Varanasi) aren't that significant. Not saying they aren't worth knowing (especially for Indians), but it's probably more useful to know the top 20 cities in India, the US, and China than it is knowing the top 60 cities in India IMO.

You should include Raipur, it has over a million people. If you included it under metro Bhilai can you accept Raipur for Bhilai?
