Correct Answer - Option 4 : A,B, and C



  • It is the process of depositing a layer of any desired metal on another material by using electricity. 
  • The process has a wide range of industrial applications. 
  • It forms a protective layer over metal and makes it corrosion resistant. 
  • It also gives a shiny appearance to metals.

How Electroplating reduces cost?

  • Chromium metal is corrosion resistant and has a shiny appearance. 
  • But the metal is very costly and it is not corrosion-resistant. 
  • So, applying electroplating of Chromium over cheap metal provides a cheap alternative of chromium. 


So, electroplating has benefits such as 

- providing resistance against corrosion

- providing the lustrous appearance

- cost benefit 

So, All statements A,B and C are correct. 

  • Electroplating is done by the process of electrolysis. 
  • The process is also used for coating silver, gold over cheaper metal to form jewelry.
