In an unbiased n-p junction electrons diffuse from n - region to p - region because :

  • Option 1)

    holes in p - region attract them

  • Option 2)

     electrons travel across the junction due to potential difference

  • Option 3)

     electron concentration in n - region is more as compared to that in p - region

  • Option 4)

    only electrons move from n to p region and not the vice - versa

As we learnt in

P -N junction as diode -

It is a one way device. It offers a low resistance when forward biased and high resistance when reverse biased.

- wherein

R = 0, Forward 

\rightarrow \infty Reverse

 

 In unbiased p-n junction, electron diffuse from n region to p region because of concentration gradient. 

Correct option is 3.
