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.
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.
