Explanation:-
Answer : CDiscuss it below :Madan Raj Yadav Said on 2022-10-04 05:27:01question asked about insulation resistance,not a wire resistance, so it is confussing, all length have same insulation Umapati k Said on 2018-08-15 02:52:00Insulation resistance is inversely proportional to the length. As cable length will increase insulation resistance will decrease and vice versa... !!
