Hint: Topography is the study of the features of a land/area surface.
Topography of an area refers to the physical, natural appearance of that area.
The objective of topography is to determine the position of any place in terms of both horizontal coordinate system(latitude, longitude) and altitude.

Complete answer:
A further division in the concept of topography is the term rolling topography. It is any land formation that is not high enough to be considered a mountain. It is formed by erosion or some other force in nature like a glacier and can also be formed by the eruption of volcanoes over time.

Europe has a rolling topography. Europe is sometimes known as a peninsula of peninsulas (surrounded by water on three sides). It is a peninsula of the Eurasian supercontinent and is surrounded by the Arctic Ocean in the north, the Atlantic Ocean in the west, and the Mediterranean, Black, and Caspian Seas in the south. By area, it is the second smallest continent and can be further classified into 4 major physical regions: Western Uplands, North European Plain, Central Uplands, and Alpine Mountains.

Thus the correct answer is ‘Europe’.

Note:
- Topography has been applied to different science fields like in neuroscience, EEG topography is used for brain mapping. In ophthalmology, corneal topography is used for mapping the curvature of the cornea.
- In human anatomy, the topography is used for mapping the human body for surface anatomy.
- In mathematics, the concept of topography is used to indicate the general organization of features on a map.
