Other aircraft on final and higher than you, do you need to give way on base?

You are on base leg, and you notice an aircraft on final but higher than you.
You should:
A. Give way to the aircraft on final
B. Broadcast your position and continue approach, expect that aircraft will give way.

I really don't know what's the meaning of "on final but higher than you", is that a straight-in approach? Otherwise how can an aircraft on final higher than aircraft on base? ? ?

Does anyone sat the exam and encounter it? Thanks a lot!

Thanks for your reply! But I still don't understand if "on final but higher than you" is a straight-in approach? CASA always make the words confusing. Could you please explain this point?

If the other aircraft is on final and higher, it usually means the higher aircraft is making a straight-in approach.

The higher aircraft may be three or more miles out.

Thanks a lot for your explanation! I will choose your answer if I really encounter this in exam. Hopefully CASA thinks in this way as well lol.
