How many 15 amp outlets on 120 volt circuit?
Depends on the size wire used in the circuit. If you wired the circuit with AWG #12 wire on a 20 amp breaker then you can install no more than 12 outlets. If you wired it with AWG #14 wire on a 15 amp breaker then install no more than 9 outlets. This is assuming only outlets are on the circuit and nothing else.

What is a gfci outlet and when and where is one needed?
GFCI is a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter The GFCI outlet compares the electricity flowing on the hot wire and the neutral wire. If there is a difference in the two it trips. The GFCI can detect very small differences in between the neutral and hot wire. GFCI outlets should be used in bathrooms, garages, basement, outdoor outlets, counter top outlets, kitchen outlets, GFCI protection is also required in pools, spas, and hot tubs.

This depends on how many outlets you will need in the home.?
What is the purpose of copper wire without insulation?
How many wall outlets can you have in a circuit using a A breaker?
Assuming this is not an office of a place where lots of the outlets will be used to power items that draw lots of current on a 15 amp circuit wired with 14/2 wire I would limit it to no more than 10 outlets and lights combined. On a 20 amp circuit wired with 12/2 wire I would limit it to a 14 outlets and lights combined. There is no limit in the code. You just use common sense based on what is going to be used on this circuit.
What would cause a 20A circuit breaker to remain on but have power with only two outlets and nothing anywhere else?
A disconnected or broken wire along the path somewhere. If you have 5 outlets (in a row) on a breaker and the wire breaks at the 3rd outlet, the first two outlets will still work but the others will not. Rodents are known to gnaw on wires and that can cause the break. Or maybe a wire just came loose from a recepticle.
How long does it take to install and wire new outlets?
