    A) They can operate on inverters

    B) They consume less energy

    C) Their rating is based on Indian Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio

    D) Both [b] and [c]

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    Ratings based on ISEER have been introduced on a voluntary basis for Variable Speed (Inverter) Air Conditioners since June 2015 and proposed to be merged with fixed speed air conditioners in the mandatory regime from January 2018. They consume less energy as their compressor speed can be automatically controlled according to room temperature. They cannot operate on inverters as their electricity consumption is more than supplied by inverters.
