Tuesday Test Time has arrived here at the mentalfloss.com Brain Game. Good luck!

According to the 2010 Census, of the 100 U.S. cities (not metropolitan areas) with the largest populations, three of them are unique to the letter of the alphabet that they begin with. (These three also have something else in common, which you'll discover if you answer all three correctly.)

On the list of 100 most populous U.S. cities (not
metro areas), which is the only one that begins with...

the letter E?
the letter K?
the letter V?

Here are the ANSWERS.

THE ANSWERS:

EL PASO, Texas (#19 on the list);
KANSAS CITY, Missouri (#37); and
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (#39).

And the second common factor is that they all have two-word names.
