yesterday after school, i was practicin' with my school's academic a team (a jeopardy-esque type dealy where the questions are academically oriented). one of the questions was as follows: "which of the following scales has an augmented second: major, [natural] minor, harmonic minor, or melodic minor." i answered melodic minor because of those choices, it seemed to make the most sense to me, but the answer key begged to differ. it said that the harmonic minor scale has an augmented second. can any scale buffs assess the validity of that?
