Hangman game backward #9 - guess what was the question:

fill in "i" - a famous city in New York, Illinois and Nevada.
fill in "o" - half of the population said to have experience being one.
fill in "u" - You might not see it at night in the dark.

Again, your answer can be in the form of:

The question was: _ p p l e

First answer that fully explained each line will be accepted, enjoy!

Is it, perhaps:

s_n?

fill in "i" - a famous city in New York, Illinois and Nevada.

Sin city. New York City and Chicago were both previously known as sin city, and now Las Vegas holds that title. Thanks to Chris Cudmore for confirming my guess

fill in "o" - half of the population said to have experience being one.

Half the population consists of sons, the other half daughters

fill in "u" - You might not see it at night in the dark.

Rarely see the sun at night

    $\begingroup$ There is a Sin City Strip club in NY, a Sin City Resort in Il, and Las Vegas is commonly called Sin City. So this looks good to me. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 5 '16 at 17:13
  • $\begingroup$ @ChrisCudmore Those aren't cities at all. At most, Las Vegas counts for this. $\endgroup$ – question_asker Apr 5 '16 at 17:14

    $\begingroup$ This is puzzling. Words can have different meanings. "Famous Hat in Hollywood" could be "The Brown Derby" (A restaurant) $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 5 '16 at 17:16

    $\begingroup$ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sin_City_(description) Lists New York and Chicago as 'Former Sin Cities' and Las Vegas is well known as the current Sin City $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 5 '16 at 17:33

    $\begingroup$ Fill in "a" - Part of many west coast cities. Fill in "e" - You may find them in the Capital. $\endgroup$ – Darrel Hoffman Apr 5 '16 at 18:20
