## Can the outlets in a circuit be arranged in different groupings to obtain the same result? Why? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Expert Solution
To determine

Find whether the outlets in a circuit can be arranged in different groupings to obtain the same result.

Yes, the outlets in a circuit can be arranged in different groupings to obtain the same result.

### Explanation of Solution

Discussion:

The general purpose receptacles and the lighting outlets can be supplied with more than one circuit. If any problem occurs in one circuit, other circuit can manage the power supply to the outlets in the specified room.

Another way is to use the general purpose receptacles on one circuit and the lighting outlets on another branch circuit. Branch circuit runs first to the switch and then to the controlled lighting outlets. This running process is maintained and followed in order to keep the outlet box at the lighting outlets or the wiring compartment on recessed cans less crowded. The switch location includes grounded circuit conductor using which the switching devices are easily installed whenever the switch requires the connection of grounded circuit conductor.

Conclusion:

Thus, the outlets in a circuit can be arranged in different groupings to obtain the same result.
