1. The electrical equivalent component for MOS structure is:

A. Resistor
B. Capacitor
C. Inductor
D. Switch

The MOS structure acts as a capacitor with a metal gate and semiconductor acting as parallel plate conductors and oxide as a dielectric between them.

2. The Fermi potential is the function of:

The Fermi potential, which is a function of temperature and doping, denotes the difference between the intrinsic Fermi level and the Fermi level.

3. The direction of the electric field when the gate voltage is zero:
A. Metal to semiconductor
B. Semiconductor to metal
C. No electric field exists
D. None of the mentioned

Metal is more positive compared to semiconductors. The electric field exists from metal to semiconductor.
