Which condition would cause the altimeter to indicate a lower altitude than actually flown (true altitude)?
A) Air temperature lower than standard.
*B) Air temperature warmer than standard.
C) Atmospheric pressure lower than standard.

The explanation should read: Remember "when flying from high to low, look out below". This works for both pressure and temperature. If either drops, true altitude will be lower than indicated altitude. So conversely, if either rises, true altitude will be higher than indicated altitude.

in addition to "from high to low, look out below" you can remember "from low to high, clear blue sky".
