Please check question No.2, 3, 6,9,10,11,29


Addition questions, please check.

Answer should be B? The longer the extension, the greater the
amount of heating and the higher the melting rate but decreases penetration
and weld bead width.

Maybe D is more suitable

You quote conflict to the answer,.
Answer B: the weld width would be narrower, not larger.

Correct answer should be D.
