    None of the choices is correct. Only (c) seems to be an advantage an it is not an advantage of a semiconductor switch over a comparable non semiconductor type of switch.

    The main advantages of a semiconductor switch are:

    1. A physically smaller switch compared to other types of low-power switches.

    2. A switch that can be turned on and off many times in a very short time.

    3. A switch that can be operated very many times without wearing out.

    4. A switch that can be controlled by a very small electrical signal and still offer the above advantages.

    5. A switch that can make a very rapid transition between on and off.
