    They expect you to assume that Mass does not change with location. Of course, it changes by a pound or more every day due to eating, sweating, breathing and excretion. Whoever dreamed up this question did not give it much tho0ght.

    Weight = M*g, where g is the local value.

    That will be the last question of yours I answer unless I see some evidence of thinking on your part
