Question-1.The torque to weight ratio of an instrument denotes

A) sensitivity

B) fidelity

C) accuracy

D) selectivity

Answer- A) Sensitivity

Solution- Torque/weight ratio an instrument indicates sensitivity. If a pointer is having less weight, it will be having high torque/weight ratio so that even for a very small deflection pointer starts moving and indicates measured value. High torque to weight ratio indicate High sensitivity.

B) wL

C) zero

D) 1/wL

Answer- B) wL

Solution-Inductive Reactance XL=wL=2πfL

Question-8.In npn transistor , minority carriers are

A) holes

B) acceptor ions

C) free electrons

D) donor ions

Answer- A) holes

Solution-In npn transistor , Minority carriers are holes and majority carriers are electron.

Question-9.The material which is best suited for connecting wires is

A) iron

B) steel

C) copper

D) constantan

Answer- C) copper

Solution-copper wire is best suited for connecting wire,Because is has more ductility ,conductivity,very low resistance.

Question-10.Magneto motive force in a magnetic circuit relates to………… in an electric circuit.

A) potential difference

B) emf

C) electric intensity

D) voltage drop

Answer- B) emf

Solution-mmf of a magnetic circuit is relates to emf of a electric circuit.

Question-11.Which of the following is the least expensive protection for a low voltage system

A) fuse

B) air break CB

C) isolator

D) oil circuit breaker

Answer- A) fuse

Solution-Fuse is the least expensive protection for a low voltage system .It is available in the market at very less price to protect the system.

Question-12.A sine wave has a maximum value of 30V .its value at 90 is





Answer-D) 30V

Solution-v=Vmsinθ=30 sin 90=30V.

Question-13.An alternating voltage is given by v=200 sin314t. Its average value will be

A) 314V

B) 127.4V

C) 100V


Answer- B) 127.4V

Solution-Given here , v=200 sin314t

So Vm=200V , Vavg=0.637×200=127.4V

Question-14.The resistance of the earth is

A) about zero

B) 1MΩ

C) 20MΩ

D) infinite

Answer- A) about zero

Solution-The resistance of the earth is always taken at very low resistance to pass high value of fault current to ground. So the resistance of the earth is always taken at about zero value.

Question-15.Three -phase wound rotor motors are also regarded as

A) commutator

B) slip ring

C) synchronous motors

A) high

B) very low

C) 1

D) very low

Answer- B) very low

Solution-The efficiency of three phase induction motor


Here if value of ‘s’ is kept at very low value then (1-s) difference is value is very high ,then efficiency value of directly proportional to (1-s).then we obtained higher value of efficiency.
