Question 1 of 20
1. Question
1 pointsThe snap switches equipped in the panel boards are rated at 25 amperes, these switches must be protected not in excess of ……………………..
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 408.36(A)

Question 2 of 20
2. Question
1 pointsHow many 12 AWG conductors are allowed in an 12.5 in^{3} round octagonal outlet box?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC Table 314.16 (A)

Question 3 of 20
3. Question
1 pointsThe vertically run metal wireways shall be surely supported at intervals not exceeding …………. ft of wire way and shall not have more than one joint between supports.
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 376.30 [B]

Question 4 of 20
4. Question
1 pointsThe interior of any dip tank can be considered as ………………. location
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 516.3 [A]

Question 5 of 20
5. Question
1 pointsA continuous load is load where the maximum current is expected to continue for ………… hours or more.
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 100 [definitions]

Question 6 of 20
6. Question
1 pointsIf the replacement compressor motor draws 35 amperes current, what is the minimum rating for disconnecting means used to protect the motor?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 440.12(A)(1)
The disconnecting means of a motor is 115% of motor rating
disconnecting means rating = 35 * 1.15 = 40.25 amperes

Question 7 of 20
7. Question
1 pointsIf the diameter of the branch conductor is doubled, the resistance of conductor …….
Correct
Incorrect
Solution :
R œ 1/ A
Where A = area = (Π D^{2} / 4)
So the resistance decreases with diameter doubled. 
Question 8 of 20
8. Question
1 pointsOver head conductors for festoon lighting shall not be smaller than ………….. .
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : 225.6 (A)(2)

Question 9 of 20
9. Question
1 pointsWhat is the corrected ampacity of a 2/0 THWN conductors in a dry location. If the ambient temperature of location is 40^{0}C?
Correct
Incorrect
NEC Table 310.15(B)(16)
Conductor ampacity of 2/0 at dry location (90^{0}C)= 195 Amperes
NEC Table 310.15(B)(2)
The correction factor at ambient temperature (45^{0}C) = 0.87
Corrected ampacity = 0.87*195 =170 Amperes

Question 10 of 20
10. Question
1 pointsWhat is the minimum size THWN branch circuit conductor required for a 20 HP, 480volt, 3 Phase Induction type squirrel cage motor with nameplate FLI of 26.5 amps?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC Table 430.250
FLI of 20 HP 3 phase motor at 460 volts = 27 amperesRefer: NEC 210.20(A)
Conductor ampacity = 27 * 1.25 = 33.75Refer: NEC Table 310.15(B)(16)
Minimum conductor size =10 AWG THWN with 35 amperes capacity is suitable conductor 
Question 11 of 20
11. Question
1 pointsWhat is the total voltage drop in a 12 AWG conductor that supply a 18 ampere load which is located 50 feet from the power source? The resistance of conductor is 2 ohm/1000 feet.
Correct
Incorrect
Total Resistance of conductor for 50 feet length = 2/1000 * 50 = 0.1 ohm;
Voltage Drop = I * R = 18 * 0.1 = 1.8 volts

Question 12 of 20
12. Question
1 pointsA transformer having 1600 turns in primary winding and 400 turns in secondary winding is supplied with 120 volts AC. What is its secondary voltage.
Correct
Incorrect
Solution:
Secondary Voltage = Turns ratio * Primary Voltage
= 400 / 1600 * 120 = 30 Volts. 
Question 13 of 20
13. Question
1 pointsThe ungrounded ducts or conduits should be sealed before entering buildings.
Correct
Refer : 230.8
( To prevent unwanted gases entry in buildings)Incorrect

Question 14 of 20
14. Question
1 pointsWhat is the minimum percentage rated voltage that a storage battery should supply the emergency load?
Correct
Incorrect

Question 15 of 20
15. Question
1 pointsAn 120 voltage source is supplying a lamp with a resistance of 172 ohms. what is the current flow in the circuit?
Correct
Incorrect
Current Flow = 120/172 = 0.7 amperes

Question 16 of 20
16. Question
1 pointsWhat is the maximum constant wattage per linear meter allowed for heating cables embedded in concrete?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC Section 424.4 (A)

Question 17 of 20
17. Question
1 pointsWhich of the following wiring methods that can be used for underfloor wiring in computer room in a building?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 645.(E)(2)

Question 18 of 20
18. Question
1 pointsWhat is the maximum standard over current device rating used to protect instrument circuits located in a panel board?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 408.52

Question 19 of 20
19. Question
1 pointsA 8 AWG conductor is suitable to use at maximum ………… KW supplied with a 120 volts power source?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC Table 310.15(B)(16)
maximum ampacity of 8 AWG is 50 amperes.
E = 120 volts
maximum power = 120 * 50 = 6000 watts or 6 KW
