Question

# Consider the following statements:(a) The magnitude and direction of alternating current reverses periodically.(b) Frequency of alternating current in india is 50 Hz.(c) The frequency of direct current is zero.Which of the above statements are correct?

A
(b) and (c)
B
(a) and (b)
C
All of them
D
None of them

Solution

## The correct option is B All of themElectricity flows in two ways: either in an alternating current (AC) or in a direct current (DC).Electricity or "current" is nothing but the movement of electrons through a conductor, like a wire. The difference between AC and DC lies in the direction in which the electrons flow. In DC, the electrons flow steadily in a single direction, or "forward." In AC, electrons keep switching directions, sometimes going "forward" and then going "backward." Alternating current is the best way to transmit electricity over large distances. Physics
