Q:

A) Higher input impedance | B) Better stabilized voltage gain |

C) Lowered frequency response | D) Higher input impedance & Better stabilized voltage gain |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: D) Higher input impedance & Better stabilized voltage gain

Explanation: The applied negative feedback can improve its performance (gain stability, linearity, frequency response, step response) and reduces sensitivity to parameter variations due to manufacturing or environment. Because of these advantages, many amplifiers and control systems use negative feedback.

Q:

A) low-pass | B) high-pass |

C) band -pass | D) band-stop |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: D) band-stop

Explanation: Twin T-oscillator is an RC oscillator consists of Twin T-network and an op-amp. Twin-T is actually a combination of low pass and high pass filter combined parallel response provides a band-stop filter with a center frequency equal to

fr=1/2?RC

This is resonant frequency, Oscillations can occur only at this frequency as the filter provides significant negative feedback at frequencies below or above the resonant frequency which is not good for oscillation.

Q:

A) minimum | B) maximum |

C) equal | D) Zero |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: A) minimum

Explanation: The slope of the crystals impedance suggests that as the frequency increases across its terminals. At a particular frequency, the interaction between the series capacitor and the inductor creates a series resonance circuit reducing the crystals impedance to a minimum and equal to Resistance.

Q:

A) True | B) False |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: B) False

Explanation: The oscillator is a device which gives an AC output without any input. Oscillator needs an input signal for start. But once the capacitor is charged then, Oscillator can effectively start work without an input signal.

Q:

A) True | B) False |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: A) True

Explanation: Bode plots show the frequency response of a system. There are two Bode plots one for gain (or magnitude) and one for phase.

The Nyquist plot combines gain and phase into one plot in the complex plane. It is drawn by plotting the complex gain g(i?) for all frequencies ?. That is, the plot is a curve in the plane parameterized by ?.

Q:

A) unity feedback equal to 1 | B) negative feedback less than 1 |

C) positive feedback greater than 1 | D) no feedback |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: C) positive feedback greater than 1

Explanation: In oscillators using positive feedback it is important that amplitude of the oscillator output remains stable. Therefore the closed loop gain must be 1 (unity). In other words, the gain within the loop; provided by the amplifier, should exactly match the losses (caused by the feedback circuit) within the loop.

Q:

A) a crystal oscillator | B) a voltage-controlled oscillator |

C) an astable multivibrator | D) a Hartley oscillator |

Answer & Explanation
Answer: B) a voltage-controlled oscillator

Explanation: A Voltage controlled oscillator is an oscillator with an output signal whose output can be varied over a range, which is controlled by the input DC voltage. It is an oscillator whose output frequency is directly related to the voltage at its input.

The oscillation frequency varies from few hertz to hundreds of GHz.
