Question

Figure A below shows a wheat stone bridge in which P, Q, R, S are fixed resistances, G is a galvanometer and B is a battery. For this particular case the galvanometer shows zero deflection. Now, only the positions of B and G are interchanged, as shown in figure (b). The new deflection of the galvanometer

Answer

c.

Explanation

For figure (a) galvanometer shows zero deflection. It is only possible when,

Now, after interchanging position of B and G, figure (b) can be redraw as,

Showing figure in Wheat stone bridge

Showing Figure in Wheat Stone Bridge

Now, after interchanging position of B and G, figure (b) can be redraw as,

Above figure is also satisfy the condition of null point as result (1),

So, deflection of galvanometer is zero.
