In p-n-p transistor the current IE has two components viz. IEP due to injection of holes from p-region to n-region and IE due to injection of electrons from n-region to p-region. Then
IEp and IEn are almost equal
IEp >> IEn
IEn >> IEp
either (a) or (c)
Answer: Option

Emitter is p-type in p-n-p transistor.

Therefore holes are majority carriers.

In an n channel JFET, the gate is
n type
p type
either n or p
partially n & partially p
Answer: Option

Since channel is n type gate must be p type.

The amount of photoelectric emission current depends on
frequency of incident radiation
intensity of incident radiation
both frequency and intensity of incident radiation
none of the above
Answer: Option

Only the intensity of incident radiation governs the amount of photoelectric emission.


Assertion (A): A p-n junction has high resistance in reverse direction.

Reason (R): When a reverse bias is applied to p-n junction, the width of depletion layer increases.

Both A and R are true and R is correct explanation of A
Both A and R are true but R is not a correct explanation of A
A is true but R is false
A is false but R is true
Answer: Option

The increase in reverse resistance is due to widening of depletion layer.

In the circuit of figure the function of resistor R and diode D are
to limit the current and to protect LED against over voltage
to limit the voltage and to protect LED against over current
to limit the current and protect LED against reverse breakdown voltage.
none of the above.
Answer: Option

Resistance limits current and diode is reverse connected and therefore protects LED against reverse breakdown.
