b. Demodulator
c. Variable gain amplifier
d. Multiplexer
A modulator is a device that performs modulation

14. The opposite of modulation is

a. Reverse modulation
b. Downward modulation
c. Unmodulation
d. Demodulation
Demodulation a term used in electronics to refer to the conversion of a modulation carrier
wave into a current that is equivalent to the original signal

a. Modulator
b. Demodulator
c. Mixer
d. Crystal set
A demodulator is a circuit used in AM (amplitude modulation) and FM (frequency modulation)

16. A circuit that generates the upper and lower sidebands but no carrier is called a(n)
a. Amplitude modulator
b. Diode detector
c. Class C amplifier
d. Balanced modulator
A balanced modulator is a device that modifies a signal, usually in the form of an amplitude
modulated (AM) radio signal. It takes the original signal that has both sidebands and a carrier
signal, and then modulates it so that only the sideband signals come through the output
modulator. This creates a balanced signal, as there is less noise because the carrier signal has
been removed.
