The solar cycle was studied by considering only the large active regions (AR), with small region data being ignored. Results show that at birth almost all the large AR display the correct inclination (p-part at lower latitude) while the small AR show random behavior. The maximum latitude attained by the large AR is lower by 10 deg than that of the small ones. The overlapping of contiguous cycles disappears when only large AR are considered. The number distribution of large AR differs from the Wolf number, which mixes large and small AR.
