Basic Circuit Analysis and Trouble Shooting


Quiz Questions

1.Troubleshooting is the systematic process of recognizing the symptoms of a problem, identifying the possible cause, and locating the failed component or conductor in the circuit.
True
False
2. ______________ is an unintentional low resistance path between two components in a circuit or between a component/conductor and ground. It usually creates high current flow, which will burn out or cause damage to the circuit conductor or components.
Open circuit
Short circuit
Blow out
3.The following represents _________________.?
PDH Course - Basic Circuit Analysis and Trouble Shooting 1

Short circuit
Open circuit
None of the above
4.Standard practice is for the red meter lead to be installed in the positive (+) jack and the black meter lead to be installed in the negative meter jack (-).
True
False
5.If there is a __________________, then the ohmmeter will read infinity or some very high resistance.
Circuit is open
Very poor connection like over crimped pin in a connector
Both A & B
None of the above
6. The following picture represents __________________.?

Voltmeter across a lamp in an open circuit.
Voltmeter across a lamp in a closed circuit.
Voltmeter across a resistor in an open circuit.
Voltmeter across a resistor in a closed circuit.
7.

A shorted resistor can be located with an ______________.?

Ohmmeter
Voltmeter
Both A & B
None of the above
8. A parallel circuit has more than one path in which current flows.
True
False
9._______________ the state of being continuous, uninterrupted or connected together; the opposite of a circuit that is not broken or does not have an open.
Continuity
Open circuit
Discontinuity
10.All meters have some resistance and will shunt some of the current.
True
False
