Sorry to all that chose "B"

 

The Correct Answer is: "A" Ceiling and visibilty at ETA, 800 feet and 2 miles, respectively.

 

 

 

STANDARD "ALTERNATE" AIRPORT WX MINIMUMS

 

1. Precision (ILS or PAR) approach - 600' ceiling and 2 miles visibility.

 

2. Non-Precision approach (VOR, etc.) - 800' ceiling and 2 miles visibility.

 

3. NO IFR approach - The forecast must indicate descent from the MEA - approach and landing under basic VFR.
