You fly over feature less terrain and over water at night to a runway . You are most likely to feel...
A) Closer so approach is high
B) Further away so approach is close

Does this refer to Q29 Set 5 HPL book (answer is d)?

The RWY will appear closer than it is when approaching over water or featureless terrain so a correct approach path will appear high. If this illusion is corrected for, an undershoot may occur.

I think this causes a similar illusion to bright runway and approach lights or a very clear night.

Hope that helps (/is right @Stuart)?!
