The explanation should read: Could there be a typo in this question? Is the TAS really 36 KTS? I could not find this question in the Gleim book.

The ASA book says this is LTA (or PLA) only

This is definately not the correct answer, if any it would be close to 91 according to a 36 kt tas, this question blows

The explanation should read: I found this question in the ASA Private Pilot Test Prep, Page 9-36. The ASA Test Prep shows the question as a LTA question. So I am guessing that would be why the 36TAS is used, and why my E6-B only goes down to 50KTS.
This question should be removed from the private pilot airplane test

The explanation should read: The Question is a LTA Question as labled in the asa privet pilot book and probly should not be on the RTC test but the question is workable ,because the only possible answer is 078 {B}. If you work the problem as you would for any other magnetic heading problem.

The explanation should read: using the e6-b, you can just slide the wca wheel up to somewhere like the 200 knot arc, and subtract from there. you get something like a 42 knot ground speed, and get roughly a 89' magnetic heading. the correct answer should be A!!

The explanation should read: What plane flies at 36kts? After working this from every angle there is NO exact correct answer. Is this a California entitlement question like guess and and you will be correct since we dont want you to feel bad? close is correct? Sorry, the correct answer is [A] [B] [C].
Throw out the questions that don't have exactly correct answers.

The explanation should read: Well I got this answer right because even though my E6-B only goes to 40, but the
thing is that my test was for Private Pilots. Why was this question in there?
Because I'm pretty sure I'm not going to fly anywhere near 36 knots in my
Cherokee.
