Icing conditions

AGA0001 created the topic: Icing conditions

Good evening,

I have a question in regards to icing.
This is the information that I was given from a question.

"You are flying underneath a cloud that's producing light Drizzle. The OAT is 0 degrees Celsius. What icing, if any would be assosictaed"

Rime Ice
Clear Ice
Mixture of Rime and Clear

I believe it's Clear Ice, however not 100% sure, because my assumption is that drizzle is associated with a stratiform cloud, however it will most likely form between -10 and -20

Clear ice is associated with Cumulus clouds and requires larger droplets for supercooled droplets to form. The trupical twnoerature is 0 to -15 degrees.

Could anyone please point me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance!
