Dude I read this question somewhere, can't remember where it was!

Anyways, since malignant melanoma is more common in whites, my options are reduced to Scotland or Australia. I would like to go with Brisbane, Australia because it is like sunny in Australia, all year round and Scotland is all rain and clouds. So I will pick C.

Correct Answer C is correct

The driving force behind a worldwide rise in melanoma has been increased sun exposure. The Australian population
is mainly derived from light-skinned Europeans who migrated to Australia. Indigenous, dark-skinned populations do not
have the same risk.
