    in size,by size...

    Hi,

    I would like to know if it`s OK to say "the largest/the first/the second city by size" and "the largest/the first/the second city when it comes to size".

    You do not need to use "in/by size" if you say something is the largest. Cities are usually described as the largest in population or in area.
