    • C.

      Shorten ground run by 20%

    Correct Answer
    A. Shorten ground run by 10%
    Explanation
    The use of flaps 10 on an aircraft can shorten the ground run by 10%. Flaps are aerodynamic devices on the wings that can be extended to increase lift and decrease the stall speed of an aircraft. By setting the flaps to a 10-degree angle, the aircraft generates more lift at lower speeds during takeoff, allowing it to become airborne sooner and reducing the distance required for the ground run. This results in a 10% reduction in the length of the ground run compared to not using flaps or using a different flap setting.
