    An AC sine wave is applied to the input of a full wave rectifier. The output of the full wave rectifier is then applied to a half wave rectifier. The output of the half wave rectifier will most closely resemble:

    The original sine wave?
    An inverted form of the original sine wave?
    The output of the full wave rectifier?
    None of these above?

    Please elaborate.
