Zener diode -

It can operate continuously without being damaged in the region of reverse  biased

- wherein

1) It acts as voltage regulator

2) In forward biasing it act as ordinary diode .

Since voltage across zener must be less than 10 V , there for it will not work in break down region and its resistance is infinite and current through it is zero.

 

 


Option 1)

6.0 mA

Option 2)

0.0 mA

Option 3)

4.0 mA

Option 4)

6.7 mA
