Keeps small amounts of reluctance

B. Keeps its magnetism
Explanation
A permanent magnet is a material that retains its magnetism over a long period of time. It is able to generate a magnetic field without the need for an external power source. This is due to the alignment of its magnetic domains, which remain in a fixed position even when the magnet is not in contact with other magnetic materials. Therefore, the correct answer is "Keeps its magnetism."

### The greater the current flow through an electromagnet, the?

• A.

Greater the retentivity

• B.

Lesser the field strength

• C.

Greater the field strength

• D.

Higher the core reluctance

C. Greater the field strength
Explanation
The greater the current flow through an electromagnet, the stronger the magnetic field it produces. This is because the magnetic field is directly proportional to the current flowing through the electromagnet. As the current increases, more magnetic field lines are generated, resulting in a stronger field strength.

### The intensity of electrical current flow is measured in?

• A.

Volts

• B.

Cycles

• C.

Amperes

• D.

Coulombs
