c) current and power
d) energy and power
Clarification: A.C. as well as D.C. voltage, current and resistance can be measured by making use of an electronic multimeter. It is also known as a voltage-ohm meter.

2. Basic circuit of multimeter consists ________
a) of a.c. amplifier
b) of d.c. amplifier
c) operational amplifier
d) power amplifier
Clarification: A.C. as well as D.C. voltage, current and resistance can be measured by making use of an electronic multimeter. The basic circuit of a multimeter is made up of d.c. amplifier circuit in the form of a balanced bridge.

3. Input signal magnitude is limited by ________
a) button
b) resistance
c) attenuator
d) voltage
Clarification: A range switch is provided in an electronic multimeter in order to limit the input signal in terms of magnitude. We can adjust the input attenuator and limit the input signal in terms of magnitude.

4. Electronic multimeter consists of a rectifier.
a) True
b) False
Clarification: An electronic multimeter is used for the measurement of A.C. as well as D.C. voltage, current and resistance. It consists of a rectifier section that is used to convert the a.c. input signal to d.c. voltage.

5. Multimeter can be used as an ammeter by ________
a) connecting series resistances
b) making use of a transducer
c) making use of a transformer
d) connecting shunts
Clarification: An electronic multimeter can be used as an ammeter by making use of shunt resistances across the meter. This is achieved by range selecting switch.

6. Multimeter can be used for D.C. voltage measurement by ________
a) connecting series resistances
b) connecting shunt resistances
c) connecting star delta resistances
d) using a switch
Clarification: We can obtain a wide range of D.C. voltage from a multimeter by connecting various series resistances in the circuit through a range selection switch. By adjusting the value of the resistance we get the required D.C. voltage.

7. Multimeter can be used only for low resistance measurement.
a) True
b) False
Clarification: A multimeter is used for the measurement of A.C. as well as D.C. voltage, current and resistance. By manipulating the scale with a multiplication factor of 100 and 10, 000 we can make use of a multimeter for measuring high resistances.
