I tend to agree, with no further info I would have to apply 110-14 C and assume (dangerous, huh ? especially on a test) that it would be terminated in unknown terminations, which would mean you have to assume under 100 amps and terminate it at it's 60 deg. C ampacity. If that was the wording with no further explanation, it was broad based, KINDA vague.

Bill, I understand that the temp. rating is the MAXIMUM temp. that the insulation can withstand without beginning to physically degrade. Therefore, if it is rated for 75 deg., any temp below is acceptable.

Yes, I understand. I was just wondering if that would be proper terminology to state that 75C wire is also rated 60C. I'm just asking for the purposes of this test Question but I guess that it doesn't really matter.
You didn't tell us what was considered to be the correct answer??
