hi, looking for some clarification on the q3 which relates to if indicated air speed is kept constant and the AoA is increased :

a/ Induced drag will remain the same
b/Both induced drag and parasite drag will increase
c/Induced drag will increase but parasite drag will remain the same
d/ Induced drag will increase and parasite will decrease

Answer is b
Page 28 has information regarding lift coefficient wit increased AoA whereby parasite drag is increased due to "air getting out of the way" no mention of Induced.
Thanks in advance
