0.4:1 is for (Ns/Np)^2 = Zs/Zp.

2.5:1 is for (Np/Ns)^2 = Zp/Zs.

I think that both of them are correct, the only mistake is putting both of them in the choices that is why it got a little confusing.

The followed formula is Ns/Np = underroot of Zs/Zp;

Thus Zs si Zload which is 160 ohms and Zp is 1kohms.

Answer is 0.4:1.

Thus Zs si Zload which is 160 ohms and Zp is 1kohms.

Answer is 0.4:1.

(N1/N2)^2 = R2/R1.

So the answer is option B.

So the answer is option B.

Answer should be a Turn and transform ratio is same N1/N2.

So answer A.

So answer A.

N2/N1 = turn ratio.

N1/N2 = Transformation ratio.

N2/N1=under root R2/R1.

SO 0.4:1.

N1/N2 = Transformation ratio.

N2/N1=under root R2/R1.

SO 0.4:1.

According to me, the answer should be A.

N2/N1= √(r2/r1) = k.

Is * 1000 = Ip * 160 and Ip/Is = k = N1/N2.

k = 1000/160 = 6.25:1.

k = 1000/160 = 6.25:1.

k = sqrt(r2/r1).

k = sqrt(160/1000),

k = 0.4.

Therefore ratio will be 0.4:1.

k = sqrt(160/1000),

k = 0.4.

Therefore ratio will be 0.4:1.

N2/N1 = V2/V1 = I1/I2 = K = SQR OF Rload/Rsource.
