|Statement-1: When two semiconductor of p and n type are brought in contact, they form p-n junction which act like a rectifier.|
|Statement-2: A rectifier is used to convert alternating current into direct current.|
A) Statement-1 is false, Statement - 2 is true.
B) Statement-1 is false, Statement - 2 is true. Statement-2 is a correct explanation for Statement-1.
C) Statement-1 is true, Statement -2 is true; Statement -2 is not a correct explanation for Statement -1
D) Statement-1 is true, Statement-2 is false
Correct Answer: C
Solution :Study of junction diode characteristics shows that the junction diode offers a low resistance path, when forward biased and high resistance path when reverse biased. This feature of the junction diode enables it to be used as a rectifier.
