7.   Differentiate between plain carbon steel, alloy steel,
    ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
8.   Produce a sample butt joint, lap joint, fillet weld and
    braze welded fillet using the oxy-acetylene welding process.
9.   Produce a sample of free hand flame cutting and straight line
    beveling and piercing.
10.  Produce a sample of stringer beads, padding, weaving in the
    flat position, a multipass filet weld in the horizontal
    position, a lap joint and a fillet weld in the vertical down
    position using shielded metal arc welding.
