# When a neuron is an resting state i.e not conducting any impulse the axonal membrane is: Option 1) comparatively more permeable to $Na^{+}$  ions  and nearly impermeable to $K^{+}$ ions Option 2) equally permeable to both $Na^{+}$ and $K^{+}$ ions. Option 3) impermeable to both $Na ^{+}$ and $K^{+}$ ions Option 4) comparatively more permeable to $K^{+}$ ions and nearly impermeable to $Na^{+}$ ions

Resting potential -

The electrical potential difference across the resting plasma membrane is called as the resting potential.
