hi,

for 1st question answer is c.....this method is ususlly used in resistance boxes to reduce inductance

2)the inductance a coil of N turns and lenth l and of area of cross section A is given by

L=mrmoN2A/l

as the coil is streched its area of cross section changes but volume remains same.

so, to calculate the new inductance eliminating A is necessary as it is unknown that by which amount area is decrease

L=mrmoN2A/l                     mr=relative permeability,mo=absolute permeability

L=kAl/l2                          k=mrmoN2=constant

L=kv/l2                           v=volume

when lenght is doubled

L'=kv/(2l)2

L'=kv/4l2

L'=L/4
