        But I remember being a student and not having anyone to help me out so i will cut you some slack.

        Out of the four options listed there which affect FIRE BEHAVIOR?

        Fuels-Fuel loading, Moisture content, Both have affect on how that Fire acts, More fuels, and heavy fuels, More to burn with high intensity.

        Topography- Fires like to Run Up hills. Why? The Convection column form the Flame front Dries the fuels in front of the fire, Lower fuel moisture, high intensity. The exact opposite for flame backing down hills, Flames cant preheat anything below it.

        Weather- Low Relative Humidity's, High Winds, atmospheric instability, Can you see how that's going to change Fire behavior?

        Suppression Tactics- How you try and extinguish the fire...

        Can you Find the one that doesn't belong?

          Look up the fire triangle for wildland fire...

            Fuel Characteristics - size, shape, moisture content, compactness, arrangement, material, volatility, herb stage (curedness)

            Weather Conditions - temperature, relative humidity, wind speed/direction, days since rain, build-up, spread, days since rain, dispersion, Energy Release component,

            Topography - slope, aspect, drainages, canyons, cliffs, water bodies, control points,


            Suppression Equipment (and Tactics) - engines, handcrews, dozers, tractor-plows, air tankers, counterfiring, wet lines,

            fuel, weather & topography comprise the wildland fire triangle (though in the Southeast, topography plays little role, fire is mostly weather dominated)
            Your suppression tactics are going to be determined by your available resources and where and how the wildfire is burning (not all tactics or equipment will be effective depending on your fuel topography or weather)

                  A question with those specific answers is in a test bank for FFI&II. I believe it is from the test bank associated with IFSTA Essentials.
