Expert Answer:

  • If P side of a diode is earthed and N side of the same diode is connected with a potential of -2V then the diode shall conduct and it will become a forward biased diode.
  • In forward bias, the 'p' side is connected to the positive terminal and the 'n' side is connected to the negative terminal.
  • The direction of flow of current in this forward biased diode will be from 'n' side to 'p' side that is from negative terminal to the positive terminal.
