The input impedance of short-circuited line of length l where λ/4 < l < λ/2, is

A. resistive
B. inductive
C. capacitive
D. none of the above

Answer: Option C


l < λ/4, ZL = 0

, if Zd comes +j kZC then inductive,

If Zd comes -j kZC then capacitive.

for 0 ≤ l ≤ 1/4, λ ≤ l ≤ 3λ/4 will be inductive.
