Answers (1)


As learned in the concept

Second law of electrolysis -

The masses of different substances, liberated or dissolved by the electricity are proportional to their equivalent masses.

We know that 96500 C of charge releases 1 equivalent weight of an element
96500C------->1 eq
965C------->0.01 eq
0.01 eq of Ag weighs:
                                    \frac{108}{100}\: \mathrm{g m}=1.08 \mathrm{\: gm}
Therefore,option(2) is correct
