I have a few questions even after looking at the chart at the bottom of the page, which could be used to maybe explain better some of the points made in the article. 1. In a county which contains only one district and one city, does that mean the county, district, and city are all coterminous (share the same boundaries)? 2. In the same vein of questioning, is a district always entirely/fully divided into either cities or rural districts (or both), or is there "unincorporated" lands in a county that can be located outside the boundaries of cities and rural districts? For instance, in the chart at the bottom of the page, in County B there is only the Central District and in the Central District only City Q. Does City Q share the same borders as the Central District (and does Central District share the same borders are County B?), or is there additional territory outside of City Q in the Central District which isn't administered by the City Q? 3. If the latter, is this extra territory administered by the Central District? Thanks! --Criticalthinker (talk) 08:35, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
