Instructions:
  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.

23. A class of elements in a category. A ______ groups elements with a common set of parameters (properties) - identical use - and similar graphical representation. Different elements in a ______ may have different values for some or all properties - but






24. The graphic design (fill pattern) used to represent a surface when shown in projection.






25. A line that is used to create a detail drawing. A ______ is visible only in the view in which it is drawn. You can use ______ as follows: To detail a view with part of the model visible - such as in a wall section or callout - In a drafting view to d
