    What is the name of the switches used to operate lights from two separate locations?

    • A.

      A. Single pole

    • B.

      B. 1-way

    • C.

      C. 2-way

    • D.

      D. 3-way

    Correct Answer
    D. D. 3-way
    Explanation
    3-way switches are used to operate lights from two separate locations. These switches have three terminals, allowing the light to be controlled from both locations. One terminal is the common terminal, while the other two are traveler terminals. When one switch is flipped, it changes the position of the travelers, allowing the light to be turned on or off from either location. This makes 3-way switches ideal for controlling lights in hallways, staircases, or large rooms with multiple entrances.

    Which house design allows expansion of the attic into additional living space?

    • A.

      A. Ranch

    • B.

      B. 2 story

    • C.

      C. 1-1/2 story

    • D.

      D. Split level

    Correct Answer
    C. C. 1-1/2 story
    Explanation
    A 1-1/2 story house design allows for the expansion of the attic into additional living space. This is because a 1-1/2 story house typically has a steeply sloped roof, which creates extra height in the attic area. This additional height allows for the attic to be converted into usable living space, such as an extra bedroom, office, or playroom. In contrast, the other house designs listed (Ranch, 2 story, Split level) typically have less attic space or lower ceilings in the attic, making it more difficult or impossible to expand into additional living space.

    Which house design makes exterior maintenance very difficult?

    • A.

      A. Ranch

    • B.

      B. 2 story

    • C.

      C. 1-1/2 story

    • D.

      D. Split level

    Correct Answer
    B. B. 2 story
    Explanation
    A 2 story house design makes exterior maintenance very difficult because it has a second floor that is higher off the ground, making it harder to reach and clean windows, gutters, and other exterior surfaces. It may also require the use of ladders or scaffolding, increasing the risk and effort involved in maintenance tasks.

    Which house design requires dormers to provide additional light and ventilation into the attic?

    • A.

      A. Ranch

    • B.

      B. 2 story

    • C.

      C. 1-1/2 story

    • D.

      D. Split level

    Correct Answer
    C. C. 1-1/2 story
    Explanation
    A 1-1/2 story house design requires dormers to provide additional light and ventilation into the attic. Dormers are architectural features that protrude from the sloping roof of a house and contain windows. They are commonly used in 1-1/2 story houses to maximize the usable space in the attic by allowing natural light and fresh air to enter through the windows. This design is particularly beneficial for homeowners who want to convert the attic into a living space or use it for storage purposes.

      C. Horizontal

    • D.

      D. Notes only

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Height
    Explanation
    Elevation drawings typically include dimensions that represent the height of various elements or features in a building or structure. These dimensions help to accurately depict the vertical positions of walls, windows, doors, and other architectural components. By including height dimensions, elevation drawings provide valuable information for construction and design purposes, allowing builders and architects to visualize and understand the vertical aspects of a project.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Total run
    Explanation
    The total horizontal length of the stairs is referred to as the total run. This measurement includes the entire length of the steps, from the first step to the last step, and does not take into account the vertical distance between the steps. It is an important measurement to consider when designing and building stairs, as it determines the amount of space required for the staircase in a given area.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Head room
    Explanation
    The minimum headroom for stairs refers to the vertical distance between the nosing of a tread and any obstruction above it. This is important to ensure that individuals using the stairs can comfortably navigate without hitting their heads on any overhead structures. Therefore, the correct answer is C. Head room.

    • E.

      E. Columns

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Stringers
    Explanation
    Stringers are the supporting members of the stairs that are responsible for carrying the weight of the treads and risers. They are typically made of wood or metal and are attached to the walls or framework of the staircase. Stringers provide structural stability and support for the stairs, ensuring that they can safely bear the weight of individuals using them. Therefore, stringers are the correct answer as they play a crucial role in supporting the stairs.
