Answer - C - To configure a five-way connection for a speaker that uses a lug, bare wire loops, stripped wire, a banana plug, and a pin connector, you should use a Binding post.

Key Takeaway: A binding post is a connector commonly used on electronic test equipment to terminate a single wire or a test lead. They are found on loudspeakers and audio amplifiers. It contains a central threaded metal rod and a cap that screws down on that rod. The cap is commonly insulated with plastic and is color-coded; red is active, or positive terminal; black indicates an inactive or negative terminal; and green indicates an earth terminal.
