    Correct Answer
    C. Combustible Liquid
    Explanation
    A combustible liquid refers to a substance that has a flash point at or above 37.8°C (100°F). Flash point is the lowest temperature at which a liquid can produce enough vapor to form an ignitable mixture with air. In this case, the liquid being described has a flash point at or above 37.8°C (100°F), indicating that it is not easily flammable and can be safely handled and stored. Therefore, the correct answer is combustible liquid.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Any liquid which causes fire when in contact with organic matter or with certain chemicals.

    • A.

      Corrosive Liquid

    • B.

      Combustible Liquid

    • C.

      Combustible Fiber

    Correct Answer
    A. Corrosive Liquid
    Explanation
    A corrosive liquid is a substance that can cause damage or destruction to organic matter or certain chemicals upon contact. It has the ability to corrode or eat away at materials, including living tissues. This makes it capable of causing harm or fire when it comes into contact with organic matter or certain chemicals. Combustible liquids, on the other hand, are substances that have the potential to catch fire easily. Combustible fibers refer to materials that can ignite and sustain a fire. Therefore, the correct answer is corrosive liquid, as it specifically mentions the ability to cause fire when in contact with organic matter or certain chemicals.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Combustible Fiber

    • B.

      Combustible Liquid

    • C.

      Corrosive Liquid

    • D.

      Curtain Board

    Correct Answer
    A. Combustible Fiber
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Combustible Fiber". This is because the vertical panel described in the question is used to divide the underside of the roof into separate compartments. The purpose of this division is to direct heat and smoke upwards to a roof vent. Since the panel is made of combustible fiber, it means that it is made of a material that can catch fire easily. Therefore, if there is a fire, the panel itself can contribute to the spread of the fire.

    A rocket or liquid propellant which consist of combinations of fuels and oxidizers which ignite spontaneously on contact with each other.

    • A.

      Hypergolic Fuel

    • B.

      Jet fuel

    • C.

      Propellant Fuel

    Correct Answer
    A. Hypergolic Fuel
    Explanation
    Hypergolic fuel refers to a type of rocket or liquid propellant that consists of fuels and oxidizers which ignite spontaneously upon contact with each other. This means that no external ignition source is required for the fuel to ignite. It is commonly used in spacecraft and satellite propulsion systems due to its reliability and simplicity. Jet fuel, on the other hand, is a type of fuel used in aircraft engines, while propellant fuel is a general term for any fuel used to power rockets or other propulsion systems. Therefore, the correct answer is Hypergolic Fuel.

    A piece of metal or an electrical conductor used to bypass a safety device in an electrical system.

    • A.

      By pass device

    • B.

      Jumper

    • C.

      Fuse

    Correct Answer
    B. Jumper
    Explanation
    A jumper is a piece of metal or an electrical conductor that is used to bypass a safety device in an electrical system. It allows the current to flow through the circuit without going through the safety device, such as a fuse. This can be done intentionally in certain situations where the safety device is temporarily disabled for testing or troubleshooting purposes. However, it is important to note that bypassing safety devices should only be done by trained professionals and with caution, as it can pose serious risks and lead to electrical hazards if not done properly.

The owner has the authority to control and make decisions about the property, including who can occupy it. The other options, such as occupant, chief of police, and Bureau of Fire Protection, do not necessarily have the legal right of possession or title to the property.

    Rate this question:

  • 44. 

    A material that readily yields oxygen in quantities sufficient to stimulate or support combustion.

    • A.

      Oxide Material

    • B.

      Combustive material

    • C.

      Oxidizing Material

    • D.

      Peroxide Material

    Correct Answer
    C. Oxidizing Material
    Explanation
    An oxidizing material is a substance that readily releases oxygen in sufficient quantities to support combustion. This means that it can provide the necessary oxygen for a fire to burn and sustain itself. Oxide materials, combustive materials, and peroxide materials may not necessarily have this property, so they are not the correct answer.

    Type or burner where the fuel is subjected to pressure prior to discharge into the combustion chamber and/or which includes fans or other provisions for the introduction of air at above normal atmosphere pressure into the same combustion chamber.

    • A.

      Pressurized burner equipment

    • B.

      Pressurized Or Forced Draft Burning Equipment

    • C.

      Combustion Chamber equipment

    Correct Answer
    B. Pressurized Or Forced Draft Burning Equipment
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Pressurized Or Forced Draft Burning Equipment." This is because the question is asking for the type of burner where the fuel is subjected to pressure prior to discharge into the combustion chamber. Pressurized or forced draft burning equipment refers to burners that use fans or other provisions to introduce air at above normal atmospheric pressure into the combustion chamber. This helps to ensure efficient combustion and better control of the combustion process.

    Descriptive of any substance that ignites spontaneously when exposed to air.

    • A.

      Hypegolic

    • B.

      Electric arc

    • C.

      Refining

    • D.

      Pyrophoric

    Correct Answer
    D. Pyrophoric
    Explanation
    Pyrophoric is the correct answer because it describes a substance that ignites spontaneously when exposed to air. This means that when a pyrophoric substance comes into contact with oxygen in the air, it will ignite without the need for an external ignition source. The term "hypegolic" refers to a type of propellant that ignites upon contact with another specific substance, so it is not the correct answer. "Electric arc" refers to a type of electrical discharge, and "refining" is the process of purifying a substance, neither of which are related to spontaneous ignition.

      Safety Door

    • B.

      Automatic Door

    • C.

      Self-Closing Doors

    • D.

      Panic hardware

    Correct Answer
    C. Self-Closing Doors
    Explanation
    Self-closing doors are designed to automatically close after being opened, ensuring that they are always closed and providing a barrier against the spread of fire, smoke, and heat. These doors are an important safety feature in buildings as they help to confine the fire and delay its spread, allowing occupants more time to evacuate safely. Panic hardware, automatic doors, and safety doors may have different functions or features, but self-closing doors specifically address the need for fire safety by automatically closing to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.
