c) an uncontrolled negative feedback
d) a controlled negative feedback

4. The thermal runway is avoided in a collector to base bias because_________
a) of its independence on β

c) of the negative feedback produced by the base resistor
d) of its dependence on β

5. Discrete transistors T1 and T2 having maximum collector current rating of 0.75A are connected in parallel as shown in the figure.
