Prepare for PSEG Gas Test Battery

## What is the PSEG Gas Test Battery?

The PSEG Gas Test Battery is primarily used to assess candidate's pursuing the following: street apprentice, service apprentice, and utility mechanic apprentice. By assessing a variety of apprentice skills, employers can gain a better understanding of your skill set, experience, and strengths that may not come across during an interview.

• Length of PSEG Test: Each test can range from 30-90 minutes.
• PSEG Score: It’s a pass of fail, but if you don’t pass, you don’t move on in the process.
• PSEG Practice Questions: Below are a few sample questions from among the many in the PSEG Battery, no doubt you will want to see more.

## Mechanical Comprehension - Basic concepts Question

Question: Which of the following is not a good electrical insulator?

• A: Distilled Water
• B: Air
• C: Glass
• D: Mineral Water
• E: Plastic

Explanation: The correct answer is D – Mineral Water.

Besides mineral water, all the above serve as rather good insulators: Air can conduct electricity to a certain level (lightning does cross the skies), yet if it were a good conductor, we would get electrified all day long, and no battery would be able to preserve its electric charge.

Plastic and Glass are known common insulators.

Pure water is water containing no dissolved substance. The ions in electrolytes conduct electricity, and not the water molecules themselves. Pure water contains no dissolved substance, hence no ions; therefore, it doesn't have the means to conduct electricity. Mineral water on the other hand, has an abundance of ions, and serves as a great conductor.

## Logical Reasoning Question

Question: A TIMBAT is smaller than a WATERMELON.

TRUE OR FALSE

Explanation: The second line says that a WATERMELON is smaller than a TIMBAT. A TIMBAT is therefore bigger than a WATERMELON.

Expressions Method:

It may also be helpful to solve these questions by creating expressions indicating all of the relationships given to us. Although this will initially take more time, in the long run it may actually save time and reduce mistakes as it allows us to answer similar questions that are based on the same information extremely quickly.

When discussing sourness, we will use ‘<’ to indicate “less sour than”, and when discussing size we will use ‘<’ to indicate “smaller than” (with the less sour and smaller items shown as “less than”).

 Sour Line 1: An OKLAT is more sour than a PICKLE PICKLE < OKLAT General Knowledge: A PICKLE is more sour than a WATERMELON WATERMELON < PICKLE < OKLAT Line 2: A WATERMELON is more sour than a TIMBAT TIMBAT < WATERMELON < PICKLE < OKLAT Line 3: A TIMBAT is more sour than  GHANE GHANE < TIMBAT < WATERMELON < PICKLE < OKLAT Size Line 1: An OKLAT is bigger than a PICKLE PICKLE < OKLAT General Knowledge: A WATERMELON is bigger than a PICKLE PICKLE < WATERMELONPICKLE < OKLATNotice that as of now we need to create two separate expressions as we know that both a WATERMELON and an OKLAT are bigger than a PICKLE, but we do not know their sizes in relation to each other. Line 2: A WATERMELON is smaller than a TIMBAT PICKLE < WATERMELON < TIMBATPICKLE < OKLAT LINE 3: A TIMBAT is smaller than a GHANE PICKLE < WATERMELON < TIMBAT < GHANEPICKLE < OKLAT

Notice that we know that an OKLAT is bigger than a PICKLE, but do not know if it is bigger or smaller than any of the other items.
