Expert Answer:

Cities in the urban areas are larger in scale, and are usually situated near a source of water like rivers and lakes. Likewise, Calcutta is situated on the banks of the Hooghley river. Cities could only emerge when an increase in food supply could provide for the non-food producing population. Similarly, Calcutta prospered when the city could provide food for its workers and other types of labourers. Cities are often epicentres of political power, administrative network, trade and industry, religious institutions, and intellectual activity. They also support various social groups like priests, artisans and merchants. Cities also very in terms of size and complexity. Calcutta is what we can call a 'metropolis' that supports a very large number of people unlike smaller urban centres like Bhopal and Nagpur.
