Right!
Oh no! Seems like you've either been struck by lightning or know very little about electricity. Time to study up on what has become an essential part of modern day technology!

B+, Dimly Lit

Right!
You have pretty good knowledge about electricity, but not the best. Time to study up a bit more and get your light bulb fully lit!

A+, Completely Charged Up
