Re: Why only 1 ground terminal and 2 hot/neutral on receptacles?

The only reason I can think of is that there are 2 hot/neutral terminals because you have the ability to remove the jumper and have two separate circuits on the receptacle. If you do that then you only have one screw terminal for the hot and neutral.

THIS!

A single (simplex) receptacle only has one of each screw.
