Image of B♭ major scale with missing accidental(s)

What is the correct answer? I thought it required a ♭ on every note letter except F.

    This is also a poorly worded question; it already is a major scale! Better might be "To make the scale above a major scale starting on tonic..." – Richard Feb 25 at 18:00
  • Your question was closed, because it looks like you are trying to get the answer for a quiz. You might get it reopened if reword is something like why is the answer X, I thought it was Y? – Michael Curtis Feb 25 at 18:55
  • "I thought it required a ♭ on every note letter except F." That would be Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Cb which isn't an answer option. You want to add flats by ascending fourths. – Michael Curtis Feb 25 at 19:01

It's in the F (bass) clef. You're thinking in the G (treble) clef.

The correct answer is to flat the E note, which creates a Bb major scale.
