Question

An oscillator is nothing but an amplifier with

Solution

Correct option is

Positive feedback

In an amplifier, externally applied ac input voltage is amplifier at the output. An oscillator produces an output at a desired frequency without any external input voltage. This is achieved providing a positive feedback from a part of the output of the amplifier inj the correct phase to the input circuit of the oscillator.
