5602
True airspeed is best described as calibrated airspeed corrected for
*A) altitude and non-standard temperature.
B) non-standard temperature.
C) installation or instrument error.

The correct answer should be C
The explanation should read: The Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge states on pg. 6-6 that CAS is the "indicated airspeed corrected for installation error and instrument error." Therefore [c] should be the correct answer.

The explanation should read: questioned read fine to me , this question is asking what TAS is, After CAS is already know, not what CAS is that should be already known.
