12-2 or 14-2?

Easy question, but I just want to make sure.
If I wire a receptacle circuit with a 20a circuit breaker do I have to use 12-2 wire? and If I wire lights with a 15a circuit should I use 14-2?
Can I use 12-2 for both?

You must use 12-2 for a 20 amp circuit. You can either use 12-2 or 14-2 on a 15 amp circuit.
