How skilled are you at identifying major cities from across the globe?
JLL made a simple interactive quiz to find out. Players need to name eight cites from three sets of clues for each. First, a label-less map of the cities' boundaries, rivers and airports is shown. Then, a helpful bit of local real estate trivia is revealed. Lastly, a photo of the skyline flashed.
Answering after the first clue is worth three points, after the second is two, and a correct answer after the final clue gets one point. Players can score a maximum of 24 points. For more information about world cities, visit JLL's Cities Research Center.
