    Thanks in advance Unnecessary. Just click 'Like' when you get a useful answer.

    1.The largest city in the world is Shangai.
    2.Sao Paolo is the most important city in Brazil.
    1. Click here and you'll see that Shangai is only the fifth largest city by population.

    2. This looks good to me.

    Leave a space after a full stop and comma.

    Shouldn't that be Shangh​ai?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Need help with some sentences

    It depends on how you measure the size of a city - population, area? And what constitutes a city - an administrative area, the conurbation?
    Wiki has lists for all these - Tokyo tops many.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World%27s_largest_cities
    I think Sao Paulo would also be a contentious answer. How do you attribute importance?

    But I thought the OP was after grammatical help.
