**Hint:**In this solution, we will determine the net impedance of the circuit using the relation for the series LCR circuit. Then we will use the relation of current and impedance to find the voltage across the inductor.

Formula used: In this solution, we will use the following formula:

- Magnitude of Impedance of a series LCR circuit: $ \left| z \right| = \sqrt {{R^2} + {{\left( {X_L^2 - X_C^2} \right)}^2}} $ where $ R $ is the resistance, $ {X_L} $ is the inductive impedance, and $ {X_C} $ is the capacitive inductance.

**Complete step by step answer**

In the circuit given to us we can see that a capacitor and a resistor are connected in series with an A.C. power supply such that the resistance is $ 3\;\Omega $ and the inductor of reactance $ 4\;\Omega $ . Then the net impedance of the circuit will be

$ \left| z \right| = \sqrt {{R^2} + X_L^2} $

$ \Rightarrow \left| z \right| = \sqrt {{3^2} + {4^2}} $

Which gives us

$ \left| z \right| = 5\,\Omega $

Now the voltage of the AC supply is $ E = 10\sin \omega t $ . So, at time $ t = \mu \;/\omega $ , the external voltage will be

$ E = 10\sin \left( {\omega \dfrac{\mu }{\omega }} \right) $

$ \Rightarrow E = 10\sin \mu $

Now the current across the inductor can be calculated as

$ {i_L} = \dfrac{E}{{{X_L}}} $

Which gives us

$ {i_L} = \dfrac{{10\sin \mu }}{4} $

Now since $ \sin \mu = \sin {10^{ - 6}} \to 0 $ , the potential across the inductor will also be zero.

**Hence the correct choice is option (C).**

**Note**

The reason the potential drop across the inductor will be zero since that, at this point, the inductor will have been completely discharged assuming it was initially discharged. So, if the external potential increases, the inductor will oppose the change in current and induce its own potential, thereby allowing no current to flow in the circuit. The trick in this question hence is to observe the time period at which we want to calculate the potential difference is just at the beginning of the time period of oscillation of alternating frequency.
