Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The tactical area of responsibility (TAOR) begins at the

    • A.

      Base defense operations center (BDOC).

    • B.

      Point of insertion.

    • C.

      Base perimeter.

    • D.

      Resource.

    Correct Answer
    D. Resource.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "resource" because the tactical area of responsibility (TAOR) is a designated area where a military unit is responsible for conducting operations and managing resources. The TAOR does not necessarily begin at the base defense operations center (BDOC), point of insertion, or base perimeter, as these are specific locations within the TAOR. Instead, the TAOR encompasses a larger area where resources are allocated and managed.
