37. Consider the common-collector amplifier in the figure (bias circuitry ensures that the transistor operates in forward active region, but has been omitted for simplicity). Let IC be the collector current, VBE be the base-emitter voltage and VT be the thermal voltage. Also,gm and r0 are the small-signal transconductance and output resistance of the transistor, respectively. Which one of the following conditions ensures a nearly constant small signal voltage gain for a wide range of values of RE?

(A) gRE<<1

(B) IcRE>>VT

(C) gmr0>>1

(D) VBE>>Vr


Answer-(B) IcRE>>VT
