    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #457

    Question

    If the subcontractor on your job is installing #0000 (4/0) wiring, is he likely working on the security system wiring, main feed, telephone system, or on the building's data system?

    Answer

    #0000 or 4/0 (four aught) wiring is a large, half-inch- (1.3-centimeter-) diameter wiring that you would expect to see as part of the main electrical feed.
     


     

    Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
