    The support wires must be a minimum of ______ and be securely fastened to the structural ceiling and ceiling grid system?

    • A.

      12 AWG

    • B.

      14 AWG

    • C.

Therefore, 12 AWG is the most appropriate choice for ensuring the support wires are strong enough and securely fastened to the structural ceiling and ceiling grid system.
