I will assume you mean the elevation in relation to sea level....

I do not know why they gave you City A stats....sometimes Q's give information to mislead ya or to make sure you know what you are doing....

Part A       Dlevel = 1/4  Clevel

= 1/4 (-24) = -6 ft   which is the same as saying    = 6 ft BELOW sea level  (this is Part B)

Nickolas, try drawing a picture of the sea. And put the things you know at their correct depth.

You are told A and C you can put them in.  Then you can think about D

Like this only it is not long enough.
