1. Dear Respected sir Kindly send us more questions at my email I'd
babar685@gmail.com

2. Dear sir u are too good

3. Please sent email id mohit2511619@gmail.com

4. Very much useful

5. Dear Sir plz kindly request you to send more questions at my mail shreelakshmi050@gmail.com... Its very much useful for all exams..
Thank u sir

1. Expected and logic thinking bits.good

6. Dear sir,
as per my knowledge synchronous speed is inversely proportional to number of poles
Ns = 120f/p
But you have given in the answer it is false statement for question -3, so plz clarify the same.
Thank you

1. Yes you are correct

7. Question no 3:- Ns=120f/P synchronous speed inversely proportional to number of poles it's coreect.

8. You have to search most false statement.

9. As per question, I think, (3) B only should be right answer.

10. Questions are really good. But answers are not correct.
