what is the difference between electrical and  electronics ?

1 Answer

Electrical involves Generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and hence the use of larger devices like generator, motors and transformer. Electronics works either on stepped down ac voltage or dc voltage and hence all the devices used for rectification and conversion comes into play like diodes, transistor etc. Electronics could be analog or digital depending on mode of operation of transistor.

Description : After replacing an old person by a new person, it was found that the average age of five persons of a assembly is the same as it was 6 years ago. What is the difference between the ages of the replaced and the new persons? A) 24 B) 36 C) 30 D) 15 

Answer : C) Let the ages of the five persons at present be a, b, c, d & e years. And the age of the new persons be f years. So the new average of five members' age = (a + b + c + d + f)/5 - ... - e + f) = 5x Solving e - f = 30 years. Thus the difference of ages between replaced and new person = 30years.

Description : The difference between 45% of a number and 37% of the same number is 896. What is 25% of that number ? a) 1200 b) 2800 c) 2569 d) 3467

Answer :  Answer: B (45 – 37)% of the number = 896  8 % of the number = 896  Number =896 x100 /8  = 89600/8  = 11200  25% of 11200 = 11200 x 25/100  = 280000 / 100  = 2800
