The figure shows the VTC characteristics of an NMOS inverter with three varying resistive loads (R).
The correct statement is:
Assume that the zero for electrostatic potential is in the semiconductor bulk at large x and that there is no metal semiconductor work function difference.

The circuit shown uses an NMOS transistor to implement a current source. For the transistor V_{TN} = 1V and =12.5 uA/V^{2}. The required value of V_{GS} to get I_{DC} = 25 μA and corresponding compliance voltage is:
2 = (V_{GS}  1)^{2‑}
V_{GS} = √2 + 1 = 2.414 V
To function as a current source, the transistor must be in saturation or V_{DS} > V_{DS} (sat).
V_{DS} (sat) = V_{GS}  V_{TN}
= 2.414 – 1
= 1.414.
Hence compliance voltage = 1.414 V.
Compliance voltage is the minimum voltage required to achieve the desired performance.

Given gate plate area, which is also MOS capacitor area A = 0.5 × 10^{2}cm^{2}

Dielectric breakdown happens of field greater than dielectric strength (5 × 10^{6} V/cm)
