A. Low Power factor
B. Unity Power factor
C. High Power factor

Explanation:

Power factor in an ac circuit is defined as the ratio of apparent power to the real power.

A. True
B. False

Explanation: In AC circuits, the power factor is the ratio of the real power that is used to do work and the apparent power that is supplied to the circuit.
