Question 1 of 9
1. Question
1 pointsWhat is the smallest aluminium size wire that can be used as service entrance conductors?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 230.31 (B)

Question 2 of 9
2. Question
1 pointsWhat should be electrical fuse size to protect 10 AWG conductor?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 240.4 ( B)
The fuse size must not exceed the conductor rating
Refer : NEC 310.15(B)(16)
10 AWG allowable maximum ampacity is 30 amperes, so 30 amperes fuse is suitable to protect the 10 AWG conductor.

Question 3 of 9
3. Question
1 pointsFor equipment’s installed in class I location, which of the following type of bonding is required?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 501.30

Question 4 of 9
4. Question
1 pointsA 230 volts source is connected 240 volts source. what is the minimum NEC recommended voltage for that load?
Correct
Incorrect
NEC recommends that the maximum voltage drop for both feeder and branch conductor is 5%
240 * 0.05 = 12 volts
240 – 12= 228 volts

Question 5 of 9
5. Question
1 pointsWhat is the calculated load for 3 work stations which has 5 feet multi outlets not simultaneously used and 2feet multi outlets which are used simultaneously?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 220.14 (H)
> appliances not simultaneously used => use 180 VA for 5 feet section
> appliances simultaneously used => use 180 VA for 1 feet section.
3 * 5 = 15/5 = 3 sections * 180 = 540 VA
3 * 2 = 6 * 180 = 1080 VA
= 1620 VA

Question 6 of 9
6. Question
1 pointsWhat is the minimum operating rating of short circuit ground fault protective device that can be used for individual motorcompressor?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 440.22(A)

Question 7 of 9
7. Question
1 pointsWhat is the minimum tap conductor ampacity which supply 30 A industrial heating appliances?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer : NEC 210.19(A)(4)

Question 8 of 9
8. Question
1 pointsIn a single family dwelling unit what is the minimum allowable rating of a 3 wire service conductors?
Correct
Incorrect
Refer: NEC 230.42(C)
ungrounded conductors for specific installations not to be less than service disconnecting means.
Refer : NEC 230.79 (C)
Disconnecting means for a single family dwelling unit must not be less than 100 A

Question 9 of 9
9. Question
1 pointsone 6 AWG THHN conductor is good for how many KW at 240 volts?
Correct
Incorrect
Wattage = E * I
E = 240 volts
Refer NEC Table 310.15(B)(16)
for 6 AWG THHN conductor allowable ampacity is 65 A
wattage = 240 * 65 = 15600 watts = 15.6 KW
