When the positive lead of a multimeter is connected to the anode of a diode and the negative lead to the cathode the diode is

### Right Answer is: Forward biased

#### SOLUTION

When the positive lead of a multimeter is connected to the anode of a diode and the negative lead to the cathode the diode is Forward biased.

Detailed Explanation

A diode is forward-biased when the positive test lead is on the anode and the negative test lead is on the cathode. Under the forward bias Condition—the positive lead of the meter to the positive (anode) end of the diode and the negative lead of the meter to the negative (cathode) end.
