Sample Practice Test Questions

Electronics Information

The watt is a unit of measurement for:

power

Electrical power is measured in watts (W) and is calculated by multiplying the voltage (V) applied to a circuit by the resulting current (I) that flows in the circuit: P = IV. In addition to measuring production capacity, power also measures the rate of energy consumption and many loads are rated for their consumption capacity. For example, a 60W lightbulb utilizes 60W of energy to produce the equivalent of 60W of heat and light energy.

General Science

Which of these foods should a person with high cholesterol avoid?

eggs

Fats come in three types, saturated (meats, shellfish, eggs, milk), monounsaturated (olives, almonds, avocados), and polyunsaturated (vegetable oils). Saturated fats can raise LDL ("bad") cholesterol while unsaturated fats can decrease it.

Automotive Information

Which of the following statements about v-type cyllinder arrangement is false?

has an odd number of cylinders

A v-arrangement has two rows of cylinders in a V-shaped block with a crankshaft at the bottom of the V. Any even number of cylinders is possible in this configuration from the V-2 that's commonly used in motorcycles up to V-12 or bigger for large trucks. The V design produces a shorter engine than an in-line cylinder configuration and allows for better air-fuel distribution.

General Science

Which of the following is the correct order for types of radiation from lowest to highest frequency?

radio waves → visible light → gamma rays

The electromagnetic spectrum covers all possible wavelengths and frequencies of radiation.  From lowest frequency (longest wavelength) to highest frequency (shortest wavelength) radiation: radio waves → microwaves → infrared waves → visible light → ultraviolet light → X-rays → gamma rays.

General Science

The heart __________ blood.

oxygenates

To provide oxygen to the body, blood flows through the heart in a path formed by the right atrium → right ventricle → lungs → left atrium → left ventricle → body. When blood enters the right side of the heart it is deoxygenated. It enters the left side of the heart oxygenated after traveling to the lungs.

Automotive Information

Exhaust gases from cylinder exhaust valves are collected by the:

exhaust manifolds

The cast iron exhaust manifolds collect engine exhaust gas from multiple cylinder exhaust valves and deliver it to the exhaust pipe. Exhaust manifolds can be generic or specially tuned (header pipes) to the engine. Header pipes deliver higher performance but are more expensive and less durable.

Shop Information

An arc-welder creates heat using:

high voltage electricity

Welding is a high-temperature process that involves melting the base metals in the objects to be joined to fuse them together. A filler metal is used to provide additional material to make up a joint that, depending on the weld type, can be stronger than the base materials alone. Oxyacetylene welding is a welding process that uses a torch fueled with oxygen and acetylene gases. Electric-arc welding utlizes electric current in a safer welding process (it doesn't involve burning explosive gases) that enables a wide variety of specialized applications like stick, MIG (metal inert gas), and TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding.

Mechanical Comprehension
If the green arrow in this diagram represents 420 ft⋅lb of work, how far will the box move if it weighs 140 pounds?
3 ft.
The Law of Work states that the work put into a machine is equal to the work received from the machine under ideal conditions. In equation form, that's:

Win = Wout
Feffort x deffort = Fresistance x dresistance

In this problem, the effort work is 420 ft⋅lb and the resistance force is 140 lbs. and we need to calculate the resistance distance:

Win = Fresistance x dresistance
420 ft⋅lb = 140 lbs. x dresistance
dresistance = $$\frac{420ft⋅lb}{140 lbs.}$$ = 3 ft.

Arithmetic Reasoning

Cooks are needed to prepare for a large party. Each cook can bake either 5 large cakes or 20 small cakes per hour. The kitchen is available for 2 hours and 26 large cakes and 480 small cakes need to be baked.

How many cooks are required to bake the required number of cakes during the time the kitchen is available?

15

If a single cook can bake 5 large cakes per hour and the kitchen is available for 2 hours, a single cook can bake 5 x 2 = 10 large cakes during that time. 26 large cakes are needed for the party so $$\frac{26}{10}$$ = 2$$\frac{3}{5}$$ cooks are needed to bake the required number of large cakes.

If a single cook can bake 20 small cakes per hour and the kitchen is available for 2 hours, a single cook can bake 20 x 2 = 40 small cakes during that time. 480 small cakes are needed for the party so $$\frac{480}{40}$$ = 12 cooks are needed to bake the required number of small cakes.

Because you can't employ a fractional cook, round the number of cooks needed for each type of cake up to the next whole number resulting in 3 + 12 = 15 cooks.

Arithmetic Reasoning

If $$\left|a\right| = 7$$, which of the following best describes a?

a = 7 or a = -7

The absolute value is the positive magnitude of a particular number or variable and is indicated by two vertical lines: $$\left|-5\right| = 5$$. In the case of a variable absolute value ($$\left|a\right| = 5$$) the value of a can be either positive or negative (a = -5 or a = 5).
