  4. False

c, d, f, f

  1. a & d



A, B, C, D (All)

John Olson gets the correct answers.

  1. My sources said only lead and aluminum get corroded. I then checked another source and pretty much all metals can be affected by galvanic corrosion. So the answer turns out to be different than what my original source said. D. All of the above.

  2. My sources said the IPC monitors storm sewers. I made the rest up but I found out the IPC also regulates irrigation (which could be called lawn sprinklers and also monitors flood control equipment.) So its D. All of the above.

  3. True

4.** False** Tri bearing trusses is the correct name.

So in the end I (the questions guy) got 2 wrong!

We all learn something in the interim Paul.
Good job. :slight_smile:
