City Last Stand Mile City - New Town - Olliopolis - Polberg -> Assume.
Area mountains forest coast - desert - valley ->Assume.
Rain 12 inches 27 inches 32 inches 44 inches 65 inches->assume.

The city in the desert got the least rain; the city in the forest got the most rain. 44 65 32 12 27
New Town is in the mountains. coast - forest - mountains - desert - valley
Last Stand got more rain than Olliopolis. 44 - 65 - 32 - 12 - 27
Mile City got more rain than Polberg, but less rain than New Town.
Last Stand Mile City New Town Olliopolis Polberg
Mile City got more rain than Polberg mountains - forest - coast - desert - valley
44 - 65 - 32 - 12 - 27

But less rain than New Town. ( So at present MC got 27) 44 - 27 - 32 - 65 - 12
mountains - coast - valley - forest - desert

Olliopolis got 44 inches of rain. 65 - 27 - 32 - 44 - 12
forest - coast - valley - mountains - desert

The city in the mountains got 32 inches of rain; the city on the coast got 27 inches of rain.
The city in the mountains got 32 inches of rain - forest- coast - mountains - valley - desert
The city on the coast got 27 inches of rain. 65 - 27 - 32 - 44 - 12.

So Finally,

Last Stand Mile City - New Town - Olliopolis - Polberg
Forest - coast - mountains - valley - desert
65 - 27 - 32 - 44 - 12

Which city got the most rain? ==>> Last Stand(option A).
