A fundamental difference between the manoeuvring limit load factor and the gust limit load factor is, that:

A. The gust limit load factor can be higher than the manoeuvring limit load factor.

B. The gust limit load factor is independent of the wing's aspect ratio, whereas the manoeuvring limit load factor is not.

C. The gust limit load factor has a fixed value for every transport aeroplane, whereas the manoeuvring limit load factor has not.

D. The manoeuvring limit load factor is independent of the size of the aeroplane, whereas the numerical value of the gust limit load factor is laid down in the regulations.

The correct answer is A. But in the explanation I understand that the gust limit factor must ALWAYS be higher (and not just "can be higher" like in the answer)

Moreover the explanation says "The highest gust that must be accomodated is laid down in complex regulations", like what is said in the answer D !

Can you please give details about the answer, thanks
