Sarah, you are exactly right. I plugged in 62 for the module size and only figured for one row of 5. And, the rest is history. Just for practice, if you did have one row of 5 modules in landscape, would you agree that 7 attachments for each rail is right? But, Here is the corrected answer!!
39 x 5 + 4" (mid-clamps) + 6" (endclamps) = 205"
205 - 48 (to leave 24" on either end) = 157" (which is the maximum distance between the first and last attachments)
157 / 48 = 3.2 so I will have 3.2 48" spaces between the first and last attachment. If I go with 3, I will have more than 24" from the first/last attachments to the end, so I always have to round up, I can have less than 24", but never more, according to the manufacturer's instructions. So Lets actually map it out.
48 x 4 = 192
205 - 192 = 13 inches, so if I leave 6.5" from either end to the first attachment, I get the following attachment points plotted on a line:
End = 0, then 6.5, 54.5 (which is 6.5 + 48), 102.5 (54.5 + 48), 150.5 (102.5 + 48) and 198.5 (150.5 + 48). That is a total of (5) attachments per rail.
Each rail has (5) attachments, so (2) per row of 5 modules, or 10. For two rows, that is 10 x 2 = 20.
You will most likely see a question like this on the test, and they may or may not give guidance regarding mid- and end-clamp allowances. And, that could change your answer! In reality, often you can mount modules using the holes on the underide of the frame on, say Unistrut, but a question like this without knowing the manufacturer of the racking, is tough to interpret.
Be sure to follow the frame structure you are given (16", 20", or 24" on center), if they give you one, and I have never heard of a condition where more than 48" between attachments is acceptable. So, Good Luck! Remember, you can always write up the question, as long as you can justify your assumptions if you find more than one correct answer, depending on the clamp situation...

If you have actually 20 attachments, the answer here needs to change as well:
62” x 39”/144” = 16.77ft2
16.77 ft2 x 40 lbs/ft2 = 670.8 lbs.
670.8 lbs. x 10 modules = 6,708 lbs.
6708/20 attachments = 335.4 lbs./attachment
335.4/332lbs = 1.01” + 1” for decking = 2 1/4”, as lag screws typically come in 1/4" increments. If you could not find 2 1/4", then you'd go up to 2 1/2". Or, you can use the table figure 10-23 on page 274 of Dunlop text to choose a different diameter screw, so long as you do not exceed the 1.5 times the diameter of the bolt/width of truss rule (see SolarPro Article for discussion on this. GREAT article, by the way!!!)
