14. As a circuit's load resistance is changed, there is a

significant effect upon the linearity of the dynamic transfer

characteristic and, therefore, upon the distortion. What effect will

an

increase

in

the

load

have

on

the

transfer

characteristic and the distortion?

a.

The

transfer

characteristic

becomes

straighter

and,

therefore, the distortion decreases.

b.

The

transfer

characteristic

becomes

straighter

and,

therefore, the distortion increases.

c.

The

transfer

characteristic

becomes

more

curved

and,

therefore, the distortion decreases.

d.

The

transfer

characteristic

becomes

more

curved

and,

therefore, the distortion increases.

15. Figure 3-6 below illustrates the dynamic transfer characteristic

for a certain triode circuit. If, in this circuit, Ecc = -3 volts,

then the operating point (point of quiescent conditions) on the

transfer characteristic will be point
