    Hi Yvette - 

    The other metal components are covered in different specification sections that are included in the provided table of contents - for example, aluminum windows, even though they're made of metal, are actually classified under Division 08 Openings.  Similarly, the sheet metal coping is classified under Division 07, Thermal and Moisture Protection.  

    We actually just released a new CE course where we cover this topic.  The example we use is that electrical wiring, even though mostly made of metal, is actually covered in Division 26 Electrical.

    To study further for these types of questions, I'd read through MasterFormat and take note of items that are covered in each division.  There's no need to memorize this, but it's important to understand the underlying logic of how it's organized.
