detailed solution

Correct option is C

The circuit will have inductive nature ifω>1LCωL>1LCHence (1) is false. Also, if circuit has inductive nature, the current will lag behind voltage. Hence (4) is also falseIf ω=1LCωL=1ωC, the circuit will have resistance nature. Hence, (2) is false.Power factor, cosϕ=RR2+ωL-1ωC2=1If ωL=1ωC.Hence, (3) is true.
