Solution

## The correct option is D 12√2 VAs the brightness is the same, this indicates that heat produced in the two cases is the same. So, the effective rms current supplied by the AC source is the same as the DC through the bulb. Thus, effective rms voltage of AC must be 12 V. ∴E0=√2Erms=12√2 V
