• B.

Combustibility is low

• C.

Quanttity of combustibles is moderate

• D.

Do not exceed 8 feet

A. Quantity and /or combustibility of content is low
Explanation
The correct answer is "Quantity and/or combustibility of content is low". This means that the amount and/or flammability of the materials present in the light hazards occupancies are not significant enough to pose a high risk of fire. Additionally, the answer implies that the quantity of combustibles in these occupancies is moderate and does not exceed a certain height of 8 feet.

Rate this question:

Ordinary Hazard (group 1)

• A.

Stock piles do not exceed 12 feet

• B.

Fires with relatively low rates of heat release are expected

• C.

Do not exceed 8 feet

• D.

Fires with moderate to high rates of heat release are expected

C. Do not exceed 8 feet
Explanation
The correct answer is "do not exceed 8 feet". This is because the given information states that fires with moderate to high rates of heat release are expected, and in order to control such fires, the stock piles should not exceed 8 feet. This implies that if the stock piles exceed 8 feet, it would be difficult to control fires with moderate to high rates of heat release. Therefore, the answer is that the stock piles should not exceed 8 feet.

• C.

Dust, lint, or other materials are present

• D.

Do not exceed 12 feet

D. Do not exceed 12 feet
Explanation
The correct answer is "Do not exceed 12 feet." This means that in an Ordinary Hazard group 2 situation, the height should not exceed 12 feet. This is important because if the height exceeds this limit, it could increase the risk of fire or other hazards. The other conditions mentioned, such as the absence of combustible flame and the presence of dust or lint, may also be relevant factors to consider in this context. However, the key point to focus on is the height limitation.
