Would you please explain your response Simon

Thank you Simon,

I saw these answers above:

1. False
Megacity is a metropolitan area AND has a population of more than 10 million people.

2. Not Given
There maybe other cities with more than 10 million people but not metropolitan areas.


It seems to be a reasonable answer. Could you please explain why the above answers isn't correct?

1.TRUE
*A ‘megacity’ is usually defined as a metropolitan area with a total population in excess of ten million people.
*By contrast, a ‘global city’, also called ‘world city’ or sometimes ‘alpha city’ or ‘world center’, is a city generally considered to be an important node in the global economic system
2.TRUE
*As of 2017, there are 37 megacities in existence.
3.NOT GIVEN
*It does not mention anywhere that London is Megacity and Globalcity.


FROM SIMON:

Please try not to "overthink" these answers.

1. TRUE

"a megacity is defined as... population in excess of 10 million" = refers to population size
"a global city is a city generally considered to be an important node in the global economic system" = economic importance

2. TRUE

37 cities with a population of over 10 million people = As of 2017, there are 37 megacities

Ignore the stuff about 'metropolitan areas'. Don't "overthink"!

3. NOT GIVEN

There's no information about London's population, so we don't know if it's a 'megacity'.

Dear Simon.There is one ambiguity regarding this question which I am going to post it either it is True false or not given.
Notwithstanding all the damage that will continue to be caused by wildfires, we will no longer suffer the loss of life endured in the past because of the fire prevention and firefighting measures that have been put in place, ’ he says.
Randy Jacobs believes that loss of life from fires will continue at the same levels, despite changes made.

Dear Sir, I have also one quarry about below question

Q:- Most tradesmen only went along certain sections of the Silk Road

Passage Point:- Few merchants travelled the entire route ; goods were handled mostly by a series of middle men.

in the Answer it has given True, but is it correct?

my question is that, most vs Few; along certain sections vs entire route

my assumption is that, it is false. is it correct!!!

The term ‘megacity’ refers to population size, whereas the term ‘global city’ is primarily used to denote economic importance.
=> T

Currently there are 37 cities with a population of over 10 million people.
=> T

London is classified as being both a megacity and a global city.
=> NG

Please help where the original amswere

Dear Sunder,
Few people means some people, not many people
Certain sections mean just some parts of the road(=route), not the whole (=entire) road.
So, just some people covered the entire road, the majority of people only went for one or two parts of the road, so the answer is true


1. TRUE
2.TRUE
3. NOT GIVEN

in Q2 city =megacity?

Answer to first question is FALSE and here is my explanation.
. Megacity is a term NOT referring to population size
. Megacity is a term referring to metropolitan area with over 10 million population
. Even this is acceptable....Megacity is a term referring to 'a' (particular) population size, but not referring to 'population size'

1. True
2. True
3. Not given
