A question with the wrong answer!

Yes, we are afraid so. Of the hundreds of questions in each of the dozen or more topics, we have indeed found one that has a glaring wrong answer. It asks about the labels on the curved lines on a 500-mb weather map, which are the elevations of the 500-mb surface expressed in deca-meters. The right answer is (D), but for now the software program weather trainer only accepts (B) as correct.

This is important if you are taking a certification test because there is a chance that this practice question might show up. If so, grit your teeth and mark "temperature." We apologize.

If you run across this question or one like it online, please use the right answer, as it has been corrected there.

Question # 1533
On a 500-mb wx map, you see curved lines labeled with 3-digit numbers such as 535,etc. What does "535" tell us?
(A) Pressure along that particular line is 535 mb
(B) Temperature of the air at 500 mb is 53.5 F along the line
(C) Wind speed at 500 mb is 53.5 knots along that line
(D) Height of the 500 mb surface is 5350 meters along that line

Note the question number is given here, but the only way you ever see actual question numbers in the practice sessions is to Tag the question which will save it for you.
