I have a question on a worksheet from school and can't find it anywhere in the NEC. The question reads…"The NEC term to define wiring methods that are not concealed is?
1. Exposed
2. Open
3. Uncovered
4. Bare


I own stock in FotoMat!

Exposed (as applied to wiring methods).On or attached to the surface or behind panels designed to allow access.

Open is not defined.

Uncovered doesn't rear it's ugly head until Art 392.

The only time Bare shows up in the definitions is
Conductor, Bare
.A conductor having no covering or electrical insulation whatsoever.

Now, which one makes the most sense?
