The only way to get that right would be to have all the bands laid out, and that's not going to happen for every satellite.
I haven't taken a close look at the rules this year, but unless that's a specific satellite they're emphasizing this year, that's just a bad question. I know I'd never include that on my tests. Your focus when studying shouldn't be on hyper-specific, esoteric details. Because remote sensing is such a unique process, your goal when studying for this event should be to amass a solid foundation of understanding the process, and a good test should have you build off that foundation and apply what you know in new and different real-world scenarios.
Anyway, if you ever take one of my tests, don't worry about rote memorization ;)
