Which of the following will NOT be observed when a multimeter
Question:

Which of the following will NOT be observed when a multimeter (operating in resistance measuring mode) probes connected across a component, are just reversed ?

1. (1) Multimeter shows an equal deflection in both cases i.e. before and after reversing the probes if the chosen component is resistor.

2. (2) Multimeter shows NO deflection in both cases i.e. before and after reversing the probes if the chosen component is capacitor.

3. (3) Multimeter shows a deflection, accompanied by a splash of light out of connected and NO deflection on reversing the probes if the chosen component is LED.

4. (4) Multimeter shows NO deflection in both cases i.e. before and after reversing the probes if the chosen component is metal wire.

Correct Option: 2

Solution:

(2) Multimeter shows deflection in both cases i.e. before and after reversing the probes if the chosen component is capacitor.
