At which place will the weight of an object be highest?

Earth is not a perfect sphere. Its radius at equator is greater than poles. Acceleration due to gravity is inversely proportional to the square of its radius. So, the acceleration due to gravity is greatest at poles. Hence, from relation, W = mg, it is clear that weight is highest at the poles.
