    It appears the answer for one of the Diode MCQ is wrong

    The Voltage drop across Silicon diode is:

    0.3 V
    0.5 V
    0.7 V
    1.4 V
    Correct answer: 4. 1.4 V

    I believe the answer should be 0.7V. red LEDs may have voltage drop of 1.4V.

    1. Dear Vladyslav. You are right. There was mistake. Corrected now.
