Which of the following graphs show full-wave rectification of the input voltage?

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D

Q2:

Diagram (a) shows a circuit that can be used to rectify an alternating current.

If the input voltage is that shown in diagram (b), which of the following graphs shows the output voltage as measured by the voltmeter in the circuit diagram?
