1. #### Donald

This question is a bit tricky as it does not ask about the states’ ranking by population. It’s ranking of states by the largest city in terms of population.

• #### Taran

Indeed it is.
I first thought it is about states ranking by population, but I was wrong.

2. #### Elon Newton

Only this website has correct population. Reddit and others have old population and you might get wrong answers.

• #### Rehman

You are right. I checked today’s reddit page, couple of answers are wrong.

3. #### Johnty Rohdes

Thanks for saving time. Wikipedia and even your reference has not compiled the answers properly. Your effort is appreciated 👍

4. #### David

Question between Ohio and Kansas, I clicked Ohio, I was given the wrong answer. :/

• #### TUTA_blogger

The population of Columbus (Ohio) is ~900k and that of Wichita (Kansas) is ~400k. Not sure why Microsoft thinks it’s wrong. I checked several sources and found that these are the biggest cities in those two states.

5. #### Michielle

For some reason, between Massachusetts and Ohio, the correct answer is Massachusetts. I don’t know why. Just a heads up.

• #### TUTA_blogger

Population of Boston is just ~700k. But Microsoft thinks 700k is greater than 900k. I think today’s quiz also has some mistakes.

7. #### KM

For the MO vs GA option, they claim Atlanta is bigger than Kansas City, so your list above is incorrect for those rankings. Choose GA over MO for Bing’s purposes on this quiz.

• #### TUTA_blogger

Looks like Microsoft is mixing old and new data. That’s why the quiz is buggy.
I updated it.

8. #### Leslie

These questions I got most of it wrong should’ve wrote down the answers and posted it here

9. #### PK

I was marked incorrect for choosing SC (largest city Charleston, 156K) over CT (largest city Bridgeport, 149K)

• #### TUTA_blogger

Today’s quiz seems buggy; so many wrong answers. I have updated the correct answers as per Bing.

10. #### CableXF

I picked Oklahoma over Kentucky and it was incorrect.
15 Oklahoma City Oklahoma 701,266
31 Louisville Kentucky 344,794

The largest city in Oklahoma by population
Oklahoma City
681,054 (2020)

• #### TUTA_blogger

I have observed that Bing sometimes gives wrong answers. Thanks for posting.

11. #### VPark

Same as some people have posted. I got “wrong” for answering Ohio over Kentucky, and also Wisconsin over Louisiana.
