The table given below shows the elevations relative to sea level of four locations.

Taking sea level as zero, answer the following questions:



A. Which location is closest to sea level?

B. Which location is farthest from sea level?

C. Arrange the locations from the least to the greatest elevation.

Answer :

Let us represent the table into a diagram:



The negative elevation is shown below the sea level and positive elevation is shown above the sea level.


A. The closest location from sea level seems to be C from the diagram.


C is just 55 m away from sea level, while A is 180 m, B is 1600 m and D is 3200 m.


Thus, location C is closest to sea level.


B. The farthest location from sea level seems to be D from the diagram.


D is 3200 m away from sea level, while A is 180 m, B = 1600 m and C = 55 m.


Thus, location D is farthest to sea level.


D. The least elevated according to the diagram is C, then A, after that B and then D.


Notice that, C = -55 m elevated, which is much closer to the sea than other locations.


Then, comes A = -180 m elevated, which is closer to the sea than B and D.


Then, B = 1600 m is closer.


D = 3200 m is farthest.


The arrangement is: C<A<B<D.
