      D.    To increase decrease air pressure, decrease air velocity

    Correct Answer
    A. A.    To decrease air velocity , increase air pressure
    Explanation
    The purpose of the compressor stator on an axial flow compressor is to decrease the air velocity and increase the air pressure. The stator vanes in the compressor help to redirect the flow of air and convert the kinetic energy of the air into pressure energy. By slowing down the air and increasing its pressure, the stator prepares the air for further compression in the compressor rotor. This allows for more efficient compression and higher overall pressure ratios in the compressor.
