Which of the following is correct for a step-down transformer?


Number of turns in the primary coil is less than the number of turns in the secondary coil.

Step-down transformer increases the voltage from low value to high value.

Number of turns in the primary coil is more than the number of turns in the secondary coil.

Step-down transformer is used in power station to minimize the power loss.
