     What is used to operate the engine of the helicopter among the following?

    • A.

      Rind

    • B.

      Taildagger

      Motherboard

    Correct Answer
    C. Rotor
    Explanation
    The rotor is used to operate the engine of a helicopter. The rotor consists of a rotating set of blades that generate lift and provide the necessary thrust to keep the helicopter airborne. By spinning the rotor blades, the engine creates the necessary airflow over the blades, allowing the helicopter to take off, land, and maneuver in the air. The rotor is a crucial component in the functioning of a helicopter and is responsible for the helicopter's flight capabilities.
