AC sine wave

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...Thanks.

Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.

The full wave rectifier flips the negative half cycles of the sine wave and turn them into positive half cycles. So the output of the ...
