You posted this same question at electricians talk and we asked you there to try and answer the questions. We gave you art. numbers and all-- we are not going to do your homework. Sorry

If you try to find the answers you will learn better.

It is like driving, the more you drive the streets the better you will learn the streets. If someone drives you around town, you will not learn what street leads to what.

The more practice you do with the code book the better you will learn how the books works.

If we give you the answer, what are you going to do if someone asks you a question on a job site? Who are going to call?

No problem...

~~Please excuse the mess. Sig under construction~~
If you wanna call me up and explain every answer
to me ill pay ya 85 bucks. Not even joking. Let me know
*explain* every answer?

"engineering support" presumes the client has some
familiarity with the work, and needs a capable set
of experienced eyes to help out.

"tuition" is a whole 'nother thang altogether.

what you have is a code test, commonly inflicted
upon apprentices, and people sitting for a masters,
or contractors, license.

this is a professional forum. you have to have some familiarity
with the work, for this to be a useful experience for you.

and no, we aren't gonna do your homework for you.
this isn't mommyNdaddy.com

sorry.

you could try electriciantalk.com

ask for frunkslammer.... tell him i sent you.
