Hint Germany is located in the sixth largest continent out of the seven. The continent is bordered by the Arctic Ocean on its North, by the Atlantic Ocean on West, by the Mediterranean Sea towards South, and on East by Asia.

Complete answer Germany is situated in central and western Europe. It lies between the Baltic and North Seas to the north, and the Alps to the south, covering an area of 357,022 square kilometres (137,847 sq. mi). It is surrounded by Denmark in the North, to the east by Poland and the Czech Republic, by Austria and Switzerland to the south and to the west by France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. It is Europe's seventh largest nation by area and the world's 62nd largest.
The temperate climate in most of Germany ranges from oceanic in the north to continental in the east and southeast. In the southern Alps, winters vary from cold to mild and are usually overcast with little rainfall. Summers in Germany can range from hot and dry to cool and rainy. There are prevailing westerly winds in the northern regions that carry in moist air from the North Sea, moderating the temperature and rising precipitation. Conversely, there are more high temperatures in the southeast areas.
Germany is one of the largest countries in Europe and covers a wide range of landscapes: the tall, pure southern mountains; the dusty, rolling northern plains; the forested hills of the urbanised west; and the agricultural eastern plains.

Hence, the correct answer is (C) Europe

Note The magnificent east-central city of Berlin, is at the spiritual heart of the country, which rose like a phoenix from the ashes of the Second World War and now, after decades of division, is the capital of reunified Germany.
