Please edit in which country you are in, and confirm the wire size you used.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this belongs on DIY, the Home Improvement stack.

12mm wire? That's either 0000 or 6 AWG depending on which size the 12 mm refers to. Both of those are huge for residential wiring.

comment Is it acceptable to run 10-3 wire to a 110V 20A junction box?
Since you're tapping into an existing junction box, the real issue will be space. 10/3 isn't much bigger than 12/2, but a crowded box complicates it.

comment How can I test the electricity of a business for an event that will need lots of it?
I was just talking about a quick eyeball test. If you know you need 200 amps but only see circuits rated for less than that, you don't need to test to know it won't work.

The fuse or circuit breakers, and wiring size coming out of it. You'd have to know how much power you will draw, but a quick look at the cable gauges and fuse ratings will tell you if it will be enough.

comment Hanging pictures/mirrors to drywalls without leaving big holes
Removing self-drilling drywall screw anchors is a bad idea. The hole will be huge. depending on how you do it. Generally, you want to cut the head/lip off, or push it in flat, then spackle right on top. If you really want you can push it into the wall so it falls out INSIDE the wall. you never want to pull it out See youtube.com/watch?v=yUzfOLzRIPc or debbie-debbiedoos.com/2013/08/…
