1. A megger indicates infinity when test terminals are open-circuited. This is because:
a) No current flows through the current coil
b) No current flows through the pressure coil
c) No current flows through the compensating winding
d) Current does not flow through current coil and pressure coil

2. Potentiometer is an __ instrument:

a) Indicating
b) Comparison
c) Calibrating
d) Recording


3. Which of the following bridge is frequency sensitive:
a) Wheatstone bridge
b) Maxwell bridge
c) Anderson bridge
d) Wien bridge

4. Tesla coil is a ___ transformer:
