10.TVS diode is used for
 (a) Voltage protection
 (b) Current protection
 (c) ESD protection
 (d) None of the above

[11] The amplifier is which current is proportional to the signal voltage, independent of source load resistance is called
a) Current Amplifier
b) Voltage Amplifier
c) Transresistance amplifier
d) Transconductance amplifier

[12] Alternatively the characteristic impedance is called

a) Surge Impedance

c) Alternative Impedance
d) Reflected Impedance

[13] In an RL circuit after a very long time of application of step voltage the inductance L is represented in its equivalent circuit as Incorrect!
a) Open Circuit
b) Short Circuit
c) L / 2
d) 2L

[14] By passing a triangular wave through a differentiating circuit the output wave shape is

b) Squarewave
c) Sawtooth
d) Sinewave

[15] Clipper circuits are used to obtain any one of the following waveforms
a) Sharper
b) Rectified
c) Fast Rising
d) Smaller Amplitude

Solution Hint:
[1] When the temperature increases, the resistance of conductor(copper) decreases and resistance of semiconductor(germanium) increases
 [7] In the FET, the gate terminal is electrically isolated from the channel. ie, it is always unbiased.
[10] TVS stands for Transient Voltage suppressor. It is used for transient voltage protection. 
[15] The clipper circuit will clip part of the waveform. so it can be used for smaller amplitude of the waveform.

  1. very useful question plz provide formula as well and plz mail some electrical eng related objective typ qstn on email. id

  2. Vvvv awsm. But plz provide wit brief explanation. Send questions to

  3. Vvvv awsm. But plz provide wit brief explanation. Send questions to

  4. Can anyone explain the answer of question no 3

  5. I think the answer in question 14 is incorrect since the derivative of triangle wave is a square wave, so it should be (B).

  6. I think answer of question no 14 will be
    B> Squarewave
