    • D. 

      All the above

  • 3. 
    When observing electrical safety
    • A. 

      Leaving the power connected allows you to monitor the success of the build

    • B. 

      Wearing watches and ring is acceptable while working in low power circuits

    • C. 

      Eye protection is necessary as components may shatter.

    • D. 

      You should always treat the circuit as if it is off

  • 4. 
    In preparing to build on a breadboard you should.
    • A. 

      Simply look at the schematic and begin the build

    • B. 

      Never assume the test equipment and components are functional

    • C. 

      ignore any burn marks as you are only experimenting on the circuit.

    • D. 

      Assume all jumper wired and connectors are intact

    There is only one proper method to building a circuit on a breadboard.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    When connecting buss or socket strips the jumper wires should be
    • A. 

      Long enough to make the connection yet short enough to prevent complications

    • B. 

      Wrapped in a coil to prevent interferencing with the other components

    • C. 

      As long at the test instrument's leads to decrease resistance

    • D. 

      Soldered to the components to ensure conductivity

  • 7. 
    When installing a component, you should
    • A. 

      Place both ends of the leads in the same socket set.

    • B. 

      Not be concerned about observing polarity in low-power circuits

    • C. 

      Plan ahead to allow connections with other components

    • D. 

      None of the aboves

    • B. 

      Install the instrument in series with the current path

    • C. 

      Place a resistor in series with the ammeter to prevent damaging the device

    • D. 

      Set the multimeter to the ohms position and place in series to measure opposition to current flow

  • 10.

      True

    • B. 

      False
