Question 2

Question 2        The following materials have been provided for this exercise:
                        (a)        one mild steel pipe 500 mm x 13 mm diameter;
                        (b)        one 13 mm mild steel elbow;
                        (c)        one 13 mm mild steel backnut;
                        (d)        one 13 mm mild steel socket.

Very few candidates attempted this question. This may be due to lack of required practical tools in the schools.
