# Switchgear and Protection Mcqs

This set of Electrical engineering Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on study of “Switchgear and Protection”. These questions are chosen from a collection of most authoritative and best reference books on Electrical engineering. Our aim is to prepare an individual for competitive exams like NTS, GAT, ECAT, University and College entrance exams, Jobs and interviews. One should practice our MCQS to assimilate Switchgear and Protection Mcqs comprehensively.
