    RCF procedure...the question asks for the sum of the required trip fuel and contingency fuel. Why does the answer include alternate fuel and additional fuel as well? Wouldn't the question just ask for total fuel then, rather than trip fuel?

    It is possibly a badly worded question because it could be argued that the required Trip Fuel is the fuel Dep to Dest and the associated contingency from DP to Dest. But the reported EASA answer is associated with the calculation for the largest total quantity of fuel, which is the calculation for RCF 2.
    The regulations state that we (logically) take the largest quantity of fuel and in this case the question writer has asked for the trip fuel and contingency, not the usual contingency only.
