That is not correct.
The minor pentatonic for C would be
C Eb F G Bb
Instead if a second degree, it has a 4th degree.
Not that you couldn't use the scale posited
above. But it's not the standard one that
everyone assumes unless told otherwise.
C major pentatonic and A minor pentatonic have
the same notes, just starting in a different
C D E G A // A C D E G
Just like every major scale has a relative minor
C major = A minor), so does every major
pentatonic. C pentatonic minor, for instance,
would have the same notes as Eb pentatonic major:
Eb F G Bb C // C Eb F G Bb
