Control 5 Answer Sheet

Answer:  A

 

 

Description:  5.    A-D  Eastern Dot Knoll

 

 

The challenge here is which feature.  Since the trees partially block some of the features, it is not easy to determine which is the correct feature.  There are two kinds of knolls mapped here: form line knolls (to the east and south) and dot knolls.  The features mapped as form line knolls are larger in area, but not necessarily higher than the dot knolls.  It is important to notice that there is an unmapped knoll to the west of the two mapped knolls (it is too low to be mapped).   The description means the eastern-most of two dot knolls inside the control circle.  A bearing could also aid in deciding the correct feature.
