Assuming that YOU were in either of those locations:

Northern Argentina is closer to the equator. The latitude of the equator is zero. Latitudes increase as you move farther from the equator, both north and south.

The northernmost point in Argentina is near 21.8° south latitude while the southernmost point in Spain is about 36° N near Gibraltar.

There are Spanish islands closer to the equator, the Canary Islands, at 27.6° N, but even so northern Argentina is closer to the equator by about 6° of latitude.

Northern Argentina is closer (about 1500 miles or 2400 kilometers south of the equator). Argentina (and most of South America) is south of the equator, so northern Argentina is closer to the equator than southern Argentina. (Argentina extends from about 22°S to about 55°S latitude.)

Florida is closer to the equator than southern Argentina or any part of Spain is, although it's closer to southern Spain than it is to Argentina. But northern Argentina is closer to the equator than either Florida or any part of Spain. Southern Spain is also closer to Florida than it is to Argentina, but no part of any of them is as close to the Equator as Ecuador or Gabon is.

No.Southern Michigan is about 43° north of the equator, while northern Argentina is only about 20° south of the equator. Argentina extends as far south as 55° S latitude, the southern tip of South America.

If you live in the U.S. you are closer to the EQUATOR.

Argentina, like Chile, is very long north-to-south, and extends from about 20° S to about 55° S latitude. So northern Argentina is closer by far to the equator, central Argentina is about midway, and southern Argentina is closer to the south pole.

Northern Argentina is only 21 degrees south of the equator. All US states except Hawaii are north of the equator by more than 24 degrees. Southern Michigan is nearly twice as far north (42 degrees north). *(Argentina does extend south as far as 55 degrees, which is as far from the equator as southern Alaska.)

Since you didn't say where you live, we can't really figure that out, can we? I personally am closer to northern Argentina...

People in most of Argentina are closer to the equator than people in southern Spain. Spain is between 37 and 43 degrees north of the equator. Only 20% of Argentina is more than 37 degrees south of the equator.

Since Kansas, Argentina, and Spain all occupy land areas that comprise great numbers of different points, it's not a simple matter to answer a question like this while maintaining the proper levels of delicacy and absurdity. Northern Argentina is closer to the equator than anywhere in Kansas or Spain. But there's a lot more to say about this situation: There are parts of southern Spain that are closer to the equator than anywhere in Kansas, and parts of northern Spain are farther from the equator than a big part of Argentina or anywhere in Kansas is. Also, nowhere in either Kansas or Spain is as far from the equator as some parts of southern Argentina are. But no matter what anybody says, there are two things you can definitely be sure of: All of Spain is closer to the Prime Meridian than anywhere in Argentina or Kansas is, and Kansas is never in any part of Argentina or Spain.
