Still confused on this question: What oceans are higher in latitude than the Indian Ocean?
Would it be the Southern Ocean and the Arctic Ocean? There are latitude points that would refer to them being higher, but they don't refer to the highest latitude of each. Also would the southern be counted or is there another ocean because sometimes the southern is not considered an ocean?

  1. This is a strange question. The northernmost latitude of the Indian Ocean is 31 degrees North. Therefore the other three oceans are further north than the Indian.
