As we discussed in

Potential Difference -

V_{B}-V_{A}=frac{w}{q}

-

 

 J=\frac{I}{A}\:\:=I=JA

i.e it is clear that when an area increases the current density decreases so the number of flow of electrons will be same thus the current will be constant.


Option 1)

drift velocity

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

electric field

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

current density

This option is incorrect.

Option 4)

current

This option is correct.
