Can you use WPA2-AES if wireless encryption algorithm has to be RC4?

I've come across this question on a practice quiz and I'm not finding an explanation as to what the answer is.
Would I have to use WPA-TKIP as the strongest level of security ?
Or is WPA2-AES capable with RC4?

You can use it, but not with the device on which the wireless encryption algorithm has to be RC4.

This http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wi-Fi_Protected_Access#Encryption_protocol says that RC4 is used with TKIP and not AES.
