The sketch of output voltage V_{o} vs. input voltage V_{I} is of from
For voltages 5V < V_{I} < 5 V both the diodes are off since the diodes are reverse biased.
The output voltage V_{o} = V_{I}
For V_{I} ≤ 5V
The diode D_{1} is forward biased, while D_{2} is reverse biased
For V_{I} ≥ 5 V
The diode D_{1} is reverse biased, while D_{2} is forward biased

Consider a pn junction at zero bias with an electric distribution as sketched below. Calculate the builtinpotential

The correct waveform of the output of the given circuit is
Assume the Zener diodes are ideal with threshold voltage V_{k} = 0.7
For positive cycle when V_{I} = 0.7 V, the 6 V Zener diode is forward biased while 4 V is reverse biased
For negative cycle V_{I} <0.7 V, the 6 V Zener diode is reverse biased 4 V Zener diode is forward biased
For 0.7 < V_{I} < 0.7 both the diodes are reverse biased hence V_{out} = V_{I}
The output waveform will be of form
The correct statement regarding depletion and diffusion capacitance is
i) Depletion capacitance is dominant in reversebias voltage
ii) Diffusion capacitance is dominant in reversebias voltage
iii) The diffusion capacitance is due to a stored charge of minority electrons and minority holes near the depletion region
iv) Depletion capacitance is directly proportional to the width of the depletion region
Diffusion capacitance is due to transfer of minority carries during forward bias. The minority carries diffuse from one end of junction to other, causing variation of charge with applied voltage. This leads to capacitance, it is present only in forward bias and is significantly higher than depletion capacitance in forward bias.
Depletion capacitance is due to storage of charges in reverse bias junction, which acts like parallel plate capacitance with forward voltage, the depletion width decreases increasing depletion capacitance. It is less than diffusion capacitance in forward bias mode.
