The one that more closely matches the terrain where it is to be located.

Sounds to me like 2 different projects with different terrains.

But if it's a genuine choice, I'd go for the cheaper option! In any case there's likely to be other factors apart from engineering considerations.

That would be for you to decide, taking account of initial costs, running costs/revenue income, and assumed payback time. Maybe also decommissioning costs at end of life.

Select the project that the instructor favors.

Why not give the forum your evaluation of both and someone here will have an opinion. (Actually, many here will have opinions)

Do your own homework!
