I have to confess I do not know what a VOR checkpoint is! I don't think it's a phrase I have ever read before...

But I would agree with JTL - seeing as the others seem either too accurate or inaccurate for anything involving compass bearings.

C is incorrect. Anybody else care to take a stab at it?

C was guess.

This is a random selection of the remaining answers. Wink

(Actually, if the question isn't about a 5 degree error, I should think it's about accuracy of the system, therefore I'm going for a 1?? accuracy!)

At least I admitted my ignorance from the outset. Very Happy

What is one then?

A point on an aerodrome indicated by a check point marking (on the ground) and sign. The marking indicates the exact spot the aircraft is to be positioned over to receive the correct VOR signal...

...apparently Laughing

Although I have never seen one. Wink

No the answer is B. When on this spot the VOR must give a bearing accurate to within 2?? to comply with the standards.
