    We recently got this question on a science test, it is multiple choice and you have to pick one and only one option, and can't give any other details.

    Where is the atmosphereic pressure the greatest?
    A - Top of a mountain.
    B - Bottom of a deep valley.
    C - Sea level.
    D - All the same.

    Do you think this question is answerable with only that information and what would you pick?

    If the valley is below sea level, like Death Valley California, then it could be the valley. Otherwise, sea level. I think it's a bad question.

    Yea, that's what I'm getting at. I put deep valley seeing as it doesn't actually give elevation and got it wrong because the answer was sea level.
