Need more detail but sounds like,  REF...

So, you are taking the test...and asking for answers to the questions on here. How is this going to help you in the real world during a match? Are you going to ask all the shooters what the rule is to be followed? It is you who is taking the test, not the members and shooters on the forum. You have a rule book....read it.
