A. 200 V
B. 2(200) V
C. 2(400) V
D. 800 V

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Assertion (A): A GTO circuit is more compact than SCR circuit

Reason (R): A GTO can be turned off by negative gate pulse.

A. Both A and R are correct and R is correct explanation of A
B. Both A and R correct but R is not correct explanation of A
C. A is correct but R is wrong
D. A is wrong but R is correct

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Since commutation circuit is not required, GTO circuit is compact.
