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.Yeah, I realize sometimes they ask you things that are really hard to know, like for example they could ask you about which bands on a certain sensor test NIR wavelength. 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.
Anyway, if you ever take one of my tests, don't worry about rote memorization ;)
