The Cable Connector Quiz



Today's Lunchtime Quiz at mental_floss is a lot of fun, especially for someone like me who spent decades connecting audio-video equipment professionally. I'm sure you will enjoy it, too! Can you identify ten different types of connecting cables, both old and new? Good luck; I scored 80%. Link

Yay! I passed my nerd exam with a score of 100%.
That was real easy.
I can now sit with a smug sense of satisfaction, along with all the other people who have no life.

Telephone cable was a dead giveaway, there's no red in a Cat5/6 Ethernet cable...

Unless you're colourblind... 4 pins versus 8. Ethernet cabling tend to be round due to twisted pairing whereas telephone tend to be flat.

10/10. I'm an AV guy, so I would have some real issues if I got any wrong.
