True or False: Everest is the tallest mountain.
Highest point above sea level, not the "tallest mountain."
The post stated "tallest" v.s. Highest.
Although Mount Everest, at 29,035 ft
(8,850m) tall, is often called the tallest mountain; Mauna Kea, an inactive volcano on the island of Hawaii, is actually taller. Only 13,796 feet of Mauna Kea stands above sea level, however, if you measure it from its base, which is below sea level, it is 33,465 feet tall.
Highest, not tallest
On Earth, yes. In the solar system, no. Olympus Mons on Mars holds that title.
Sea level to peak is Everest.
From base to peak is Mauna Kea
From center of earth to peak Chimbarazo.
Now that's some specific specifications.
At least the tallest above see level.
I put false because Earth wasn't specified.
Yeah Mars has that one that puts anything here to shame
True, and there is a 100% chance that there are even bigger one outside of our own solar system.
It’s not the tallest if tall refers to the distance from the base to the summit (that goes to Mauna Kea I believe), but it does have the highest peak above sea level.
It depends. You didn’t specify Earth and there are many peaks taller than Everest in the solar system (and likely beyond). If you are restricting it to Earth, it also depends if you are measuring from mean sea level or the center of the Earth. Everest is the tallest above sea level. But Chimborazo is taller if measured from the center of the Earth.

Yeah I just double checked, it’s Mauna Kea.
