Below is a list of ten places on earth, with one missing. Some names belong to multiple places on earth, so first find the geographical division that contains each place exactly once (for example, a country name), and then use only the ten places found in that division. Next, find one geographical attribute (for example, the population) of each place, so that if you take the first number or first letter of each place’s geographical attribute, in the order shown, it forms a familiar ten-character number, word or phrase. What is the missing place, and why? If more than one place could qualify as the missing place, then list the place with the largest population.
