Here we have a classic exam type question- AWG and it’s definition or meaning or what it refers to in the electrical industry. This looks easy and that is why it is or can be a trick- remeber you’re writing an “electrickery” exam. Electricians are typically hard working efficient professionals looking for the most direct route to accomplish a task. However, electricians can get “squirrelly” and grab the first available answer and then quickly move on to the next.Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here, let’s take our time: we see there is an “all of the above” answer choice- this typically means trouble on our electrical exam. This means you have to consider carefully each answer choice because the ” all of the above” answer choice is guiding us to do just that.
The 309A Construction and Maintenance Electrical Exam requires the person taking the exam to take the time to answer the question correctly. Remember if the answer choice looks too easy or too good to be true – it probably is!!
In this case the answer looks so obvious to be:
1. American Wire Guage
but the correct answer actually is :
4. all of the above
In this classic case of “electrickery” Section 0, under AWG of the CEC tells us so!!!
We are professionals taking our time to write the exam- there is no rush- you have 4 hours – be accurate !
