    Bad question for sure however since no neutral is mentioned IMO you have to assume all are current carrying conductors. I sometimes wonder if the people who make up these exams ever take the test themselves.... I will add that it is not an easy task.

    I agree poor question, Dennis provided one answer which is probably what the writer had in mind but if 266 amps wasn't on the answer list then you would need to search for an alternative calculation.

    Could be one conduit carrying 7 B phase conductors. I think 266 is the best answer, tho certainly not the only one.
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!
