Name That Cable

Here’s a little quiz that should be right up your alley. Can you identify all ten cable connections in the Cable Connector Quiz? I’m almost ashamed to admit that my score was 80%, considering I’ve heard from so many others today who were proud to score 100%. Mind you, some of these are pretty old and some are quite recent. Good luck –as if you need it!

    • I think I would have gotten 100%, but don’t know. When I got to the point of choosing the last item it submitted my selection and then went to a page that displayed only the page’s heading. Rather boring.

  1. 100%

    I will admit, I totally guessed on the telephone cable one. It looks almost exactly like ethernet. That was a first try, too.

  2. I’m confused, does the quiz change the cables it uses in the quiz? Because i cant see why anyone visiting this site wouldn’t hit 100….
    The telephone cable? Jst count the damn wire leads!

  5. 100%. It was easy (I’m computer’s Systems Engineer) but the telephone one almost trick me because you can also use that cable for an Ethernet connection you just need to change the plug (for an RJ-45) and the internal cable configuration.

  7. 100%

    A lot easier than I expected, even being only 16. I almost got caught on the phone jack, but saw the wires and how short it was.

    Great quiz to start off the day!

  9. Silly quiz. I got them all. Kept expecting to a co-ax cables or an external SCSI cable. These could have added a challenge depending on the options given.

  11. Oh yes, it could have been much harder, but this quiz wasn’t really aimed at y’all, but a more general audience. I knew you guys would blow it out of the water.
