What wouldn't pass? Just NM or that and my MC?

Would a length of gray PVC conduit to the top of the 2x6 pass?

BTW, I did pick up an AFCI for that bedroom circuit... I guess I like to be the teachers pet.

PVC requires protection from physical damage just like NM, and MC also... see my point on this subject yet? So logically, if an inspector does not pass NM alone, they should no way condone another wiring method, but since they are all numbskulls, people are forced to do un warranted work.
