Capillary tubes are part of the
a) evaporator coil

The capillary tube is actually on the high pressure side of the system. So to say the capillary tube is only part of the evaporator would be like saying the compressor is only part of the condenser.Given the limited choices, I would have answered A & C. But I learned long ago that this contest is more of an exercise of “guess what I’m thinking”.
A capillary tube is nothing but a long, fixed-length tube with a very small diameter that is installed between the condenser and the evaporator. The capillary tube actually meters the refrigerant from the condenser to the evaporator.
