    Explanation of Solution

    Given:

    Technician A says that while checking a rheostat with a voltmeter, the voltage should change smoothly with a change in the control.

    Technician B says that a potentiometer can be checked with a scope.

    Variable resistors help to identify the value of resistance within a specified range. They can be measured with an ohmmeter or voltmeter...
