Year 9 Electric Circuit Test - Quiz

You must have read about electricity and electric circuits during your Science class. The quiz below tests your knowledge of the year 9 electric circuits. As part of the larger Science subject, electric circuits are taught. Electric energy is used in many different ways, both directly and otherwise. An electric circuit is a closed loop or path, forming a model of electrical components in which electrons can flow. The quiz below is all about electric circuits. Play it now to increase your understanding of it.
