    And here I always thought the correct answer is "nobody."

    Sometimes I don't know whether I'm the boxer or the bag.

    And now for the real electrical exam

    1. What color is a green ground screw?______________________

    2. Electricity will leak out of pipes if you do not use rain tight fittings. T F

    3. To trip a circuit breaker, you must stick out your foot as it walks by. T F

    4. When dealing with conduit, the O.D. must exceed the I.D. or the hole will be on the outside. T F

    5. A keyless fixture cannot be unlocked. T F

    6. A circuit breaker reads "20" on the handle. This means it can trip 20 times before it is worn out. T F

    7. If you plug something 110 volts into a 120 volt outlet, you will have 10 volts leakage. T F

    8. When hooking up a 220 volt device, you must use 220 volt wire. T F

    9. The gauge number of a wire is the number of plugs the wire can handle. T F

    10. A flush mount device may only be hooked up to a toilet. T F

    11. An ohm is a Hindu measurement of voltage. T F

    12. Electrical Inspectors are also known as: _____________________

    13. Service Entrance Conductors direct from the supply house with current already in them are very dangerous. T F

    14. High voltage wire is used on upper levels of tall buildings whereas low voltage wire is usually found in the basement or underground. T F

    15. If you have a molded-case circuit breaker, the mold can be washed off with warm soapy water. T F

    16. Three ECs enter an empty room and lock the only entrance: the door. All have on a tool-belt with a regular screwdriver, a pair of lineman's pliers, and a roll of Scotch-33. The light overhead is supplied by a sinusoidal voltage source and the light has a 0.935% power factor. Harmonics are not a factor, but the Carnot Cycle might be. The next morning, all three ECs leave the room and lock the door behind them. How many ECs are left in the room? __________
