An analyzer is rotated about an incident ray. The intensity of light is found to increase and decrease, but it does not become zero at any point. The incident light is:
a.partially polarized
b.plane-polarized
c.polarized in two planes
d.unpolarized

  • physics -

    They probably expect answer (a), but it could also be (c).
