Under the influence of electric field, which of the following statement is true about the movement of electrons and holes in a p -type semiconductor?

Electron will move towards the positively charged plate through electron holes
Holes will appear to be moving towards the negatively charged plate
Both electrons and holes appear to move towards the positively charged plate
Movement of electrons is not related to the movement of holes

detailed solution

Correct option is A

In a p-type semiconductor, the conductivity is due to existence of hole. When electric field is applied to a p - type semiconductor and the hole appears to move towards negatively charged plate and the electron moves towards positively charged plate.
