Higher elevation to lowers elevation indicates a depression.

Increasing value towards there center indicates hill and in a ridge line concave side of higher values inside indicates ridge line and higher values upward indicates valley.

If there is reduced in levels towards the centre it means there is any depression.

Contour lines of decreasing order towards the centre points out that it is a hil or and area of higher elevation.

For series of a closed contour.

1) Higher value are inside the circle is known as HILL.

And 2) higher value are outside the circle is known as DEPRESSION.

A series of closed contour line on the map indicate the depression when the higher values are outside, while the series of closed contour lines on the map indicates the hill when the higher values are inside.

Saurabh Sehara said: (Sep 16, 2018)  
Both B & A is correct according to me.

Aparna Das said: (Sep 20, 2018)  
Closed contour lines with reducing levels towards the centre indicate pond or other depression.

Niazi said: (Nov 17, 2018)  
Closed contours of decreasing value towards centre indicates a depression.

Closed contours of increasing value towards centre indicates a hill.

Similar to a close counter line with one or more value lower inside then it represents a valley or depression.
