I am a total beginner on electronics (I bought my first breadboard very recently) and I have a question that I can’t seem to find the answer on the internet: how can I make a pnp transistor switch on a breadboard?

    \$\begingroup\$ You really want to learn how to go straight from schematic to breadboard. If you can't find a breadboard diagram, find an article on building on breadboards from schematics. \$\endgroup\$ – TimWescott Jan 4 at 21:44

    \$\begingroup\$ Most breadboards have easily removable back covers too, so you can take the back off to clean out bits of metal and fix the springs. Open it up and see the connection patterns. Once you know how it works, it's just a bunch of convenient wire connectors. \$\endgroup\$ – K H Jan 4 at 23:53
