0.02 microF-MEANS=2*10^-8 WHICH is greater than all aboves.....

Micro means 10^-6.

0.000020F=2X10^-5F,
200000 PF=2X10^-7 F,
2000 PF=2X10^-9 F, Acoording to Questions 0.02*10^-6 F=2*10^-8F,
When compare to all the answer,2000 PF is greater than 0.02 MF.

Micro farad means "mi cr of a rad".

What is the value of PF?

Raji said: (May 27, 2014)  
pF = 10^-12F.

What PF & MF explanation?

Raja said: (Jul 27, 2014)  
No one is correct.

Because 0.02 micro farad is same as 2,000 picofarad.

Dipak Shah said: (Aug 15, 2014)  
0.02MF Means 2*10^-8 and 2000PF Means 2*10^-9.

So 0.02MF larger than 2000PF.

0.02*10^-6 = 2*10^-8.

So 2*10^-12 = 2000 pf.

1 micro farad = 1000000 pico farad.

0.02 micro farad = 20,000 pico farad.

Which is only greater than 2000pF? Please correct me if an wrong.

@Abdul, you are absolutely correct, but for clear understanding for others:

Note: For negative numbers smaller the value greater it is:

.*. per question, 0.02mf = 2x10^-8.

Option (A) 0.000020f = 2x10^-5.

Option (B) 200,000pf = 2x10^-7.

Option (C) 2000pf = 2x10^-9.

Therefore option (A) > (B) > 2x10^-8 > (C).

Correct answer 0.02mf is only greater than option (C).

Please give me the explanation clearly.

Please explain the pf & mf value.

Omnamah said: (Aug 29, 2017)  
Got it, thank you for the explanation.

Pico farad 10^(-12).
Micro farad 10^(-6).
Given that;
0.02*10^-6 = 2*10^-8.
From options it is clear that 2000*10^(-12) = 2*10^(-9).
So option C is correct.
