Which of the following is incorrect: \[\] When a potential difference is applied across, the current passing through

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;An\: insulator\: at\: 0K \: is\: zero & \quad (B)\;A \: semiconductor \: at \: 0K \: is\: zero \\ (C)\;A\: metal\: at\: 0K\: is\: finite & \quad (D)\;A\: p-n\: diode \: at\: 300K\: is\: finite, \: if\: it\: is\: in\: reverse\: bias \end {array}$


1 Answer

At temperature 0 K the metal has almost zero resistance so the current flowing is infinite. $I = \frac{V}{R}$
So (C) A metal at 0 K is finite is false.
$\therefore$(C) is correct option.
