The correct answers are:1. a. True.The contour lines are one of the most important methods to show the relief on maps. Connect to the points that are at the same height, and are enclosed areas. With this method, the observer of the map presents a very nice picture of the landscape that is presented, assuming that the observer understand the contour lines.2. b. False.The height of an object above sea level is the elevation of the object. The sea level is taken as zero height, and generally with the method of triangulation, or through the use of satellites, the elevation of a certain object is determined.
