Default Questions of the week of 8/26/18


Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!



Questions of the week:


Introduction and requirements:

A member of the Award Committee will post a question, at a random day/time.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member's winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winnings will be limited to no more than 3 times in a given year,
the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers
or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

So please refrain from participating if you have already won in the maximum for the Year.

First correct answer (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of "Now that you've had a Home Inspection Books" shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Hello Marcel. I could not log on for a few days but I'm back. Hmmm, I found the information for the questions in a short amount of time so I thought they were fair questions. Maybe everyone is too busy inspecting?

Old guy! Hell you don't look a day older than 45. Must be an old picture.

That is up to Paul to decide Steve.

And I fail to understand with 165 people on line right now, how they can't give this a shot to win these books.
