order of magnitude estimate

Which of the following is the best order of magnitude estimate in meters of the height of a mountain?
a) 1 m
b) 10 m
c) 100 m
d) 1000 m


And your thinking is...?

We will be happy to critique your thinking or work.


I perosnally think that it is d is that correct?


As an order of magnitude, it is probably the best. 1000m can mean 500 m to 5000m
