    That's what I thought

    I was trying it the way you described because that's what I had been taught. And like we have figured out it is not an answer choice. And yes it was from the pool of questions in my NETA 2 Practice Test. Unfortunately I think the question is ignoring the 4-20mA and treating it like a 0-20mA because of the answer choices available.

    So, I've always just made my range 0mA to 16mA, with my reading minus 4.

    So, at 14mA, my calculation would be (10mA*150A)/16mA = 93.75, so my guess would be the answer of 90A due the possibility of inaccurate.

    Not sure if this question is the best example to work off of, did you get this from the question bank? Might be one to bring up to the administrators.

    To check my work I use calculators similar to this one:
