It is not hard to understand a "throttle cable". Its function is to connect the lever that is required to be moved over a range of positions to operate the device it is connected to. An important component being the outer sheath. As anyone can easily deduce "pushing" anything with a thin piece of wire would only be possible over a short distance. This is why the wire is enclosed within a flexible outer sheath which prevents the wire from just bending instead of transmitting the force at the input end of the cable to the output end.

This is a very simple mechanism that anyone who wishes to be any kind of engineer should have little difficulty in working out how it works. If they are unable to work this simple mechanism for themselves, maybe engineering isn't a good career option for them. Shop assistant, cook, accountant or one of the many other employment options that a mechanical aptitude is not required may be a better choice for them.
