Diode Forward Bias characteristics

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    Kindly see my attachment.
    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Revered members,
    From the options given, i think the answer is ON switch, because when the input is low, that is when the applied voltage is below the breakdown voltage(0.7 V for Silicon) the current is low and when the applied voltage is equal or above the breakdown voltage, there is saturation.
    Am I correct?

    Yes.

    I don't like the question, but I suppose it does test whether you understand the concept.
