Mountants

Anybody know the answer to this question? It's driving me crazy.

Sort from largest to smallest, base to summit: Mount Everest, The Matterhorn, Mount Kilimanjaro, Mauna Kea.

I find on wikipedia: Mount Everest: 8848 m, Kilimanjaro 5892 m, Matterhorn 4478m, Mauna Kea 4205m but the game tells me it's wrong.

Indeed. What you gathered on Wikipedia was the height from sea level to summit. This is the standard definition for mountain height. However, that is not what was asked for here, because Mauna Kea's base is several kilometres under the sea.

Thanks. That question drove me nuts.
Yes I knew that wikipedia gives the height from sea level, but I didn't find the total heights of all these mountains.
