But as a majority of people who responded to this quiz got beyond sarong here is the explanation as to why Masonite is the correct answer, the best way of understanding this is to look at the reasons why the other alliances cannot be correct.
the picture cannot be of vinyl siding for the following two main reasons, firstly you can clearly see in the photograph of the boards are butted together rather than overlapped, the second reason is the obvious swelling around inappropriate face nailing of the product.
the picture clearly shows that the product has staggered joints which is not a feature of T1 11 siding, which comes typically in 8 ft by 4 ft sheets, so that the verticals seams are continuous.
as Joe F. pointed out shiplap is a style of or design, rather than a material, but also traditional shiplap would have the joints in each row staggered rather than as can be seen in the photograph, three rows having continuous vertical joints.
In fairness to all I wrote this question to deliberately throw everybody off the scent, and this question is very typical of questions that our members will see in licensing exams, first of all of you really have to pay attention to call the question is actually asking, and then be able to analyze the available answers in relation to the question, rather than just checking off the first available somewhat sensible answer.
Like I said, I can get somewhat sneaky ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
