This quiz question makes no sense, or is it that I'm too tired and need a week-end break?
Quote:
Inspectors are required to inspect underground drainage systems or to test gutters or downspouts _____________.
that are above ground and have visible deficiencies
that are buried, hidden, latent or concealed
Since we cannot inspect underground drainage systems and are not required to test gutters or downspouts (by pouring a bucket of water for example), the 2 possible answers don't make sense to me.
A-If the the drainage system is an underground system, then it is not above ground, therefore the 1st answer isn't the correct one. Since we are not required to test gutters or downspouts, answer 1 still isn't phrased properly as it only addresses visible deficiencies.

B-Answer two would be the correct answer, but the question is then missing the negative "not".

Inspectors are not required to inspect underground drainage systems or test gutters or downspouts that are buried, hidden, latent or concealed.

C- The answers should have been True or False

This course is tough due to the sections about brokers and real estate agents. I'm just an inspector. Am i missing something here.

This course has been updated to 8 hours.

It is approved by Texas TREC for 8 IC hours and fulfills the new 8-hour requirement for inspectors.

The TREC regulations indicate a State that believes in providing the best possible services to their residents during real estate transactions. The TREC goes above and beyond many other states in providing these requirements for licensing in Texas.

Ben,

Perhaps I'm tired of reading and just missed it, but I don't see the Ventilation portion of the TREC SoP in the HVAC section. Just an FYI. I know where to find it.

Best Regards,

Rick
