What state capital has the highest elevation in the United States?

Santa Fe

Answer: Santa Fe is the capital of the state of New Mexico. Santa Fe is located at 7,199 feet above sea level, making it the highest state capital in the United States. The elevation of Santa Fe is so high that visitors to the area may need some time to adjust to the city’s conditions. The air gets thinner at higher altitudes and the temperatures get colder too, with various other side effects. The city of Santa Fe (meaning "holy faith" in Spanish) was founded by Spanish colonists in 1610, making it the oldest state capital in the United States.

SRI  LANKA

Answer: Sirimavo Bandaranaike became the first woman prime minister in the world when she was elected Prime Minister of Sri Lanka in 1960. After her husband, who became prime minister in 1956, was assassinated in 1959, she was induced by his Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to become the party’s leader. The SLFP won a decisive victory at the general election in July 1960, and she became prime minister. She left office in 1965 but returned to serve two more terms (1970–77, 1994–2000) as prime minister.
