1. True
2. False
3. None of above

F. The opposition to the magnetic lines of force in a magnetic flux is called _____. 

1. Reluctance
2. Inducatnce
3. Resistance
4. Impedence

G. The winding resistance of a coil can be increased by ____ the number of turns or by using a _____ wire.

1. decreasing, thicker
2. decreasing, thinner
3. increasing, thicker
4. increasing, thinner

3. 18.65 KW
4. 30.65 KW

I. Which of the following statements is false about the cleanliness of electric motors?

1. Dirt, oil, grease, and moisture are primary reasons for the deterioration of insulation of the stator windings of a motor.
