17th Edition 2382 MOCK exam from past papers - No. 2

This is a mock exam for the 17th edition C&G 2382 exam. All the questions are from past exam papers. In order to simulate the exam conditions we recommend using a stopwatch set to two hour. During that time you need to answer all 60 questions. Remember this is an open book exam so feel free to use the 17th edition of Wiring Regulations book.
You will find the correct answers on the last page of this mock exam. Good luck!
