19 is wrong, if by large, you mean tall. Dubai's Burj Khalifa is the the tallest. ~300 meters taller than the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lampur.

By large, I meant large, as in floor space........
That being said, research shows that the answer is out-dated by a few years.......
Abraj Al Bait Towers , in Mecca, holds the record for now, but when complete, Dubai's
"Pearl" will be the largest, with over 20 million feet of floor space...........

So....... I missed one; how many did you miss ?


Seriously, tho- THX for keeping the quiz honest .
