# MCQs on Single Phase and Three Phase AC Circuit ## Definition of Single Phase Vs. Three Phase AC

AC (Alternating Current) is basically an electricity which passes through the conductive wires to operate the load such as washing machine, fan, LED etc. In the single phase AC, two wires are used in which first wire is line/Phase and second one is neutral. In the three phase AC, four wires are used in which three wires have line/phase and one is neutral. All the three wires of 3-Phase AC is 120° out of phase. Three phase Ac can be connected in Star and Delta Connection. All the MCQs on Single Phase and Three Phase AC circuits are published according to the new study syllabus for academic year 2021-22.
