    What is the exact text of the full question? (btw, just multiplying your rate and time numbers, 510 X 11 is 5610, closer to (d) than to (c).)

    At what altitude did you start the climb? If you started, for example, at an airport whose field elevation was approximately 3200′, then A would be the most correct.

    I mean what are the givens? Where did the climb rate and time come from? Were they numbers the question provided or was it something you needed to calculate?

    Yes. That was the missing “given” from the question. Good catch, Koehn.
