Answer Key / Explanation : (c) -

(c)

At null point, no current flows through galvanometer. Therefore, the resistance connected in series with galvanometer, at null point position will be in effective. Thus, null point is obtained on potentiometer wire at the original position after the removal wire at the original position after the removal of series resistance from galvanometer
