4. Give some more basic questions from electrical design,power system

5. Plz Give the Explanation for Question no 6,10,12,14,&15
It Will be help to me

1. Explanations are added.... thanks for your comments

6. Check Qn. 5

1. The correct answer is C... Thanks for your comment.... Electrolytic cap must always be used in DC....

2. Please to be edited......

7. Wrongly answered

8. Check the 7th sum...
Energy E = C * V²
Answer is 2.5 joule

9. Sorry it's E = 1/2 * C * V²
Right ans is 1.25 joule
Apologize...
