Arizona State Exam Questions Help

I have recently taken the C-11 Arizona State Electricians Exam and missed
by 1 question. A couple of questions taken from the test that I was unsure of
maybe someone here will have the answer to.. The test is based on the
1999 Nec.

1) When using a meg meter "megger" and testing a motor, if the motor is
considered to be good the reading should read:

1) no resistance
2) some resistance
3) a lot of resistance

I have never used a meg meter and do stricly residential, can't remember
what answer I gave.

2) What does a 50 amp 120volt oultlet look like... they gave 4 pictures.?

Thanks John !

I couldn't find it anywhere... the 50 amp single pole question... any insight on the megger question I posted, I'm getting ready to retake the exam, probably won't run into it again, but just in case... Also another question that kinda stumped me was when replacing an 2 prong outlet.. what can you
replace it with.. an grounded outlet,,, a gfci .,,,, or another 2 prong outlet??

Thanks for your help!

A megger is a specialty insulation/resistance tester. The answer depends on what thing the two leads are connected to and the type of motor.

Code allows you to replace a two-hole receptacle with:
(1) another two-hole receptacle,
(2) a GFCI-protected three-hole receptacle, or
(3) a three-hole receptacle without GFCI if grounding is present.

By the way, you might as well start using the proper terminology. Call a receptacle a receptacle, not an outlet. If you don't know the difference, study up because you'll need to.
