Here's a quiz originally posted back in 1991 by me on the SSE on Prodigy! I found them at an IAEI Meeting,

Caper will remember these I am sure:

Basic Electrician Exam

You Will Enjoy This. Very Funny...

Fill in the Blank

What color is a green ground screw? __________.

Electrical inspectors are known as _____________.

We all know that in winter months, that if you walk barefooted a lot across the carpet, that electricity is stored in your fingertips. Question: If you do not touch another person or something metallic and release this electricity within a certain time frame based on your height and weight, will your fingertips blow off?



If you have a 240 v 7.5hp 3 ph motor that is 500' away from the panel, what size umbilical cord is required to start this motor?



Whenever you unplug something from the wall outlet real fast, the

electricity that didn't make it back into the wall outlet is stored for how long in the appliance cord?

True / False

Electricity will leak out of pipes if they are not connected with rain tight fittings.

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

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

A keyless fixture cannot be unlocked.

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

If you plug something 110 volts into a 120 volt outlet, 10 volts will leak out and make a mess.

The gauge of wire tells you how many plugs you can hook to it.

When hooking up a 200 volt heater, you must use 220 volt wire.

When pulling two 4/0 wires into a 1/2" PVC conduit, the PVC stands for "Pipe Very Crowded."

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

Service Entrance Conductors purchased from an electrical parts house with current already in them are very dangerous to install.

High voltage wire is used in the upper levels of tall buildings whereas low voltage wire is usually found in basements or underground.

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

When landing a conductor runway light's are needed.

So if I use #24 telephone wire, I might be able to wire the whole house on two branch circuits!
