Question 8
Consider the following statements S1 and S2.
S1 : The \beta of a bipolar transistor reduces if the base width is increased.
S2 : The \beta of a bipolar transistor increases if the dopoing concentration in the base is increased.

Question 8 Explanation: 
\beta=\frac{I_{C}}{I_{B}}=\frac{\alpha}{1-\alpha}
When base width increases, recombination in base region increases and \alpha decreases and hence \beta decreases.
If doping in base region increases , then recombination in base increases and \alpha decreases, thereby decreasing \beta.
