When checked with an ohm meter an open resistor reads

Electrical Engineering XYZ MCQs

When checked with an ohm meter an open resistor reads:

  1. Zero
  2. High but within tolerance
  3. Infinite
  4. Low but not zero

Correct answer: 3. Infinite

Explanation: When you have an open resistor, it means there’s a break in the circuit, so there’s no continuous path for the current to flow through. Therefore, the ohmmeter would read an infinite resistance because it’s unable to complete the circuit due to the break.
