    hi dawn! I happen to be studying for the exam using this practice exam as well and thought I could help! You are right, the occupancy classification for the stockroom is S-2. Reading through eplanation #12 the last sentence also mentions it. If you look at the table on the next page, it's written on there as well. I'm not sure where you're seeing that they mentioned the stockroom being an occupancy M? Looking at question #14 as well and being that the answer is 1 hour would also indicate that the retail space and the stockroom are considered 2 different occupancy classifications per the table listed under resource 6.5

    Hi Celina, thank you for replying:) I might be using a different version of the Ballast(Second Edition). My version of the ballast indicates there is no separation is required because the retail space and the stockroom have the same occupancy classification(Question #15). The table also indicates that the retail area and stockroom have M occupancy classification. However the last sentence on explanation for the question #13 regarding the sqft of the retail space says the stockroom is a Group S-2... 

    Possibly a mistake?

    Interesting! I'm using a pdf version that my office has so I'm not sure what edition mine is, but it looks like yours may have a typo cause mine looks like this:

    Hope that helps!
