    (A) Becomes one-fourth
    (B) Becomes one-half
    (C) Becomes double
    (D) Remains unchanged

    (C) Time of application of the voltage
    (D) All of the above

5. In congested areas where excavation is expensive and inconvenient 'draw in system' of laying of underground cables is often adopted.
    (A) Yes
    (B) No
