Agree or Disagree?

State whether you agree with the statement.

A city that has an elevation of 15 meters is closer to sea level than a city that has an elevation of-10 meters.

I disagree.  15 meters above sea level is 5 meters farther from the top of the water than –10 meters below.

Exaggerate the conditions to make it obvious.  What if you said

A city that has an elevation of 5000 meters is closer to sea level than a city that has an elevation of –10 meters.

This technique is similar to the "reductio ad absurdum" form of argument.

I disagreen since -10 is 10 away from 0(sea level) and 15 is 15 away. 10<15 thus I disagree.
