Transponder Requirements

Hi Everyone,

I got a question about transponder requirements and I'm not sure whether i'm understanding the reference wrong or whether the answer to the question is wrong.

The question is a little something like this:

A VFR generator equipped aircraft is required to be fitted with a transponder (Mode A or C or S) when it is flying in:

A) CTA
B ) OCTA
C) Class C and E, and any airspace at or above 10,000ft AMSL
D) All Australian Airspace

The answer given is C and I understand that reasoning behind it however AIP GEN 1.5 - 6.1.1 doesn't specify that Class E requires a transponder below 10,000ft AMSL?


Cheers,
captblackdragon

All aircraft in Class A or C airspace and all aircraft operating in any airspace above 10,000 feet must have a transponder.

Also, all aircraft operating in Class E airspace no matter what the height (above or below 10,000 feet) must be fitted with a transponder.
