Author’s Note: There seems to be great confusion about the world’s largest city. If you check five different sources, you could quite possibly get five different answers from Tokyo, New York, Shanghai, Seoul, Calcutta, etc. TV game shows normally will not ask this question because of this confusion. If you are forced to guess at a trivia night, the most popular responses are Shanghai and Tokyo. You might try your luck by picking one of these.
