Right, off to bed soon, so I'll throw this one out and mark your homework tomorrow.

Inspired by HIMS largest cities in Canada question, please name the five largest (by population) cities in the following countries/areas. Actually, as the largest in each case is pretty obvious, name the numbers 2 - 6.

1. UK
2. France
3. Latin America
4. Germany
5. Italy

Loads of points up for grabs. Good luck!

(I'm sure that there are many sources of this information that you may have seen. They may not all correspond with each other - but my decision is final!)

4. Berlin, with about three and a half million people. Peak population was around 4.5 MM toward the end of WW 2. Even with reunification and relocation of the capital to this city, Berlin is slow growing. That is a blessing in disguise.

1. Birmingham (2) and Glasgow (4) correct. London is, of course, number 1.
2. Marseille (2) and Lyon (3) correct. Paris is number 1.
3. Rio de Janeiro (4), Sao Paolo (2) and Lima (5) correct. Mexico City is number 1.
4. Munich (3) correct. Berlin is number 1.
5. Milan (2) and Turin (4) correct. Rome is number 1.

No, sorry. Berlin is the largest (I asked for numbers 2-6).

10 points to Bookpossum. Still 15 to shoot for.

When I saw Manchester and Liverpool were not on the list (surprised me too, I would have said they were 3 and 4 behind Birmingham) then I knew I had to think outside the box. Cardiff was obviously too far outside...

3. Buenos Aires, Bogota?

Yep - I would have instinctively put Manchester and Liverpool in the top 6 as well, certainly ahead of Bradford and Sheffield.

Buenos Aires (3) and Bogota (6) both correct.

So for the UK we are missing number 3? I can't imagine what it is that would be larger in population than Manchester or Liverpool.

Newcastle?
