    < 80%
  • b)
    80%
  • c)
    90%
  • d)
    100%

Correct Option: D
Since there are no currents flowing in any part of the insulator circuit (assuming infinite leakage resistance), the voltage across each of the equal capacitance units is equal, i.e. uniform voltage distribution exists, the string efficiency becomes 100%.
