Of the world is correct?

It should be "in the world".

It should be "in the world".

As it is superlative, the biggest city should be used.

Option C should be in the word.

"of" signifies belonging to the world.
"in" signifies inside the world.
So both of them are correct.
Can anybody please clarify why there is the use of "any other city of the world".
I think without other sentence sounds good.
