In elevation prominence the Midwest states would certainly make it, but they're so far inland they start well above sea level, the reference point no matter where you are.

It's always been hard to find information on legitimate elevation relative to surrounding land. Colorado mountains are referenced to the same ocean water that sits right at ground zero on an Alaskan mountain. A kid's pile of dirt in Denver is measured as a bigger mountain than almost anything near the Eastern Seaboard. Flat as a pool table Denver sits on the edge of the plains but starts out at a mile high.

It has the Berkshires, but only in the western third of the state and they aren't that tall (mostly between 1-2,000 feet). Aside from some parts between Springfield and Worcester, the rest of the state is very low in elevation and there's a lot of coastline. Iowa doesn't have any mountains, but its baseline elevation is much higher by virtue of being in the middle of the country (around 800-1000 feet I think).

Easily got all of the answers right, but didn't have time to finish typing Massachusetts. You need another 30 seconds to reasonably type all of the answers, even if they were just given to you.

Not sure why New Jersey, which as an aside is where I spent most of my life, is included here. Here's part of the Wikipedia blurb regarding High Point: "it is the highest elevation in the state, with a peak elevation of 1,803 feet (550 m)". There's a monument that sits atop it, and which is approximately 200 feet high, but that's in addition to the 1,803 feet.

Hawaii has a pretty high elevation, considering every single on of the islands is made up of a volcano, many parts of the islands are high in elevation.
