When making resistance or continuity tests on electronic equipment
containing a meter, you should take
which of the following steps to protect the meter from burning out?
1. Short the meter terminals to ground
2. Disconnect the meter from the circuit
3. Use an extremely low-resistance range on the test equipment
4. Ensure meter current flows in an up-scale direction
Disconnect the meter from the circuit
Which of the following meters is designed to measure more than one electrical quantity?
1. An ohmmeter
2. An ammeter
3. A voltmeter
4. A multimeter
A multimeter
What is the purpose of a shunt used in an ammeter?

mechanism for measuring dc voltages, the basic meter circuit is modified
by the addition of
1. multiplying resistors placed in parallel with the meter movement coil
2. multiplying resistors placed in series with the meter movement coil
3. shunts to limit current flow and protect the meter movement
4. shunts to protect the meter
movement from high voltages
multiplying resistors placed in series with the meter movement coil
When making voltage checks in a given circuit, you should use which of the following types of meters?
1. A 20,000 ohms-per-volt meter
