1) Does the wall switch contain a black screw? If so, what wire color is terminated to the black screw?

Expert:  Kevin replied 5 months ago.

I need to know how many individual wires in the ceiling box and the individual wire colors at the ceiling box?

Red wires mean multiple wires to me. Are there more than 1 red wire or multiple red wires? I need exact specifics please? Count then individually and tell me the count?
