Electrical Engineering MCQ Sample Practice Questions
Electrical Engineering Questions and Answers With Assertion Reason Type
Electrical Engineering Solved MCQ
Directions: The following 11 (eleven) items consist of two statements, one labelled the ‘Assertion A’ and the other labelled the ‘Reason R’. You are to examine these two statements and decide If the ‘Assertion A’ and the ‘Reason R’ are Individually true and If so, whether the Reason is a correct explanation of the Assertion. Select your answer to these items using the codes given below and mark your answer sheet accordingly:
Codes:
(a) Both A and R are true and R Is the correct explanation of A
(b) Both A and R are true but R is NOT the correct explanation of A
(c) A is true but R is false
(d) A is false but R is true

1. Assertion (A): In dc to dc step Dow chopper, free-wheeling diode is mandatory for RL loads.
Reason (R): A part of energy fed to the RL load is dissipated in the resistance.

Ans:-B

2. Assertion (A): In the slip test for determining the d-axis and q-axis synchronous reactances ‘X d’ and ‘X q’ respectively of a salient pole machine, the stator has to be fed with suitably reduced voltage at the rated frequency and the rotor (with the field circuit open) has to be rotated at a speed slightly different from the synchronous speed, and the fluctuating terminating voltage and armature current are to be recorded for computing X d and X q
Reason (R): during the slip test, a slip frequency - voltage is induced across the open field circuit terminals that could be measured by connecting a voltmeter across these terminals.

Ans:-A

3. Assertion (A): Phase comparison pilot relaying for the protection of a transmission line is a blocking pilot.
Reason (R): The pilot signal is not required from the other end to permit tripping.

Ans:-B

4. Assertion (A): Thyristorised current source inverters do not operate at high switching frequency.
Reason (R): Thrystorised current source inverter is capable of four-quadrant operation.

Ans:-B

5. Assertion (A): A piezoelectric crystal is used for measurement of varying force only.
Reason (R) The equivalent circuit of a piezoelectric transducer has a shunt capacitor at its output.

Ans:-D

6. Assertion (A): Lag compensation permits a high gain at low frequencies.
Reason (R): Lag compensation is basically a low pass filter.

Ans:-A

7. Assertion (A): Stability is a major problem in closed loop control systems.
Reason (R): Introduction of feedback affects the location of poles of open-loop system.

Ans:-A

8. Assertion (A): The auto increment and auto decrement modes are seldom found in modern processors.
Reason (R): Using two instructions instead of one provides flexibility in implementing a pipeline.

Ans:-D

9. Assertion (A): Surface charge density is considered a physical possibility for either dielectrics or perfect conductors.
