b. The open-circuited, quarter-wave line acts like
circuit. It presents a low impedance to the generator.
c. The quarter-wave line inverts the load, that is, a short circuit
looks like an open circuit to the generator, while an open circuit appears
as a short circuit.
d. The voltage and current are shifted
inverting properties of the quarter-wave line.
