Quiz: Diode Resistance And Electric Circuit Test! Trivia Questions

A diode according to our physics class, is a semiconductor device that allows electric correct to pass in one direction while blocking its flow in the opposite direction. The ideal diode does not restrict the movement of the current forward, and it can completely bar the reverse voltage polarity. Test your understanding of diode resistance in the electric circuit by taking the test below.
