the moto is probably better for off road and trails due to the fork (which is able to "lockout"). this one is also heavier due to the fork.
the merc is best designed for pavement riding and would probably be my personal choice.
Your daughter is only 11 so this will not be her last bike she ever buys (I hope). I would show her the 3 of those or any others on the site and see what she wants.
If you were asking which one as in what size to get her, thats a whole other ball of wax. I will say frame size is loosely based on height and reach. eg. im 5'10 and ride a 55cm. a 6 footer is probably around 58-60cm.
