Cumulonimbus. Fueled by vigorous convective updrafts the tops of cumulonimbus clouds can easily reach 40 000 feet (12 000 meters) or higher.

We are aware that there are 2 similar question in the database with different correct options. We assume that EASA refers to the height of the tropopause at different latitudes, mid-lat (40 000 ft) and Equator (20 km). We would suggest choosing the highest option.
