    When a crane motor is under load because it is lifting a container it is operating in quadrant I (receiving KW and KVAR). When it is free spinning or lowering its load back down, what quadrant is it operating in? Is it still receiving vars or is it delivering them?

    It's in quadrant 7 where you should have read your text book better before taking the test.
