    Answer:

    a. True

    Explanation:

    When a p-type semiconductor is placed adjacent to an n-type semiconductor  the common plane thus formed is termed as P-N Junction or  P-N Junction Diode.

    The diode is formed by melting both p-type and n-type semiconductors through a special manufacturing process called “Thermo-Compression Proces”.

    The P-N junction has a property of one-way conduction. It means it only allows the current to pass through it in one direction and the current flow is practically zero in the other direction. Thus, it can act as a diode. The p-side acts as the anode, while the n-side acts as the cathode.

    Hence, the correct option is:

    a. True
