Question 137 of 175

As shown in the figure, P and Q are two coaxial conducting loops separated by some distance. When the switch S is closed, a clockwise current IP flows in P (as seen by E) and an induced current IQ1 flows in Q. The switch remains closed for a long time. When S is opened, a current IQ2 flows in Q. Then the directions of IQ1 and IQ2 (as seen by E) are [IIT JEE (Screening) 2002]
