    Which of the following wires draws the most current?

    • A.

      12 AWG

    • B.

      18 AWG

    • C.

      22 AWG

    • D.

      24 AWG

    Correct Answer
    A. 12 AWG
    Explanation
    The 12 AWG wire draws the most current because the American Wire Gauge (AWG) system assigns a higher gauge number to thinner wires. Therefore, the 12 AWG wire is thicker than the 18 AWG, 22 AWG, and 24 AWG wires, allowing it to carry more current. Thicker wires have less resistance, which means they can handle a higher flow of electric current without overheating.
