I took a practice test getting ready for the certification exam and this one has me confused.

The question is:

What is minimum net clear opening for an emergency escape window when accessed by a window well for basements with habitable space and sleeping rooms?

I answered 5.0 square feet and it was wrong.   Correct was listed as 5.7 sq ft

I thought grade and below grade had an exception of 5.0 feet.   Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.
