is another electronics quiz for you to try. It covers the functions
of resistors in various circuits. The quiz appeared in the January
1962 edition of Popular Electronics. I got 100%, just for the record.
Having worked with tubes helps with figure B since it does not really
have a direct transistor equivalent, but by process of elimination
you can get it.
