A. It is the largest urban center of the country
B. It contains the country’s primary central business district (correct answer)
C. It has a very large population compared to all other urban centers of the country (your answer)
D. It is a metropolitan center

Wikipedia notes did not mention CBD or CFD as a character.

A primate city is the leading city in its country or region, disproportionately larger than any others in the urban hierarchy.[1] A 'primate city distribution' has one very large city with many much smaller cities and towns, and no intermediate-sized urban centres, in contrast to the linear 'rank-size distribution'.[2] The 'law of the primate city' was first proposed by the geographer Mark Jefferson in 1939.[3] He defines a primate city as being "at least twice as large as the next largest city and more than twice as significant."[4]

The megalopolis would be larger in terms of area because of the features that make it a megalopolis.

Conurbation - is your metropolitan city - the city that has spread out and included all the little cities/towns around it (the surrounding suburbs)amples below.
