3. Which statement best describes digital oscilloscope sampling techniques?

a. A digital oscilloscope's sample rate in megasamples per second must always exceed twice the frequency in megaHertz of the waveform it captures.

b. Oscilloscopes can use sin x/x interpolation to reconstruct a periodic waveform based on two or more acquired samples per waveform period.

c. Equivalent time sampling is a technique that enables a digital oscilloscope to capture in real time a signal whose bandwidth in megahertz exceeds half the scope's sampling rate in megasamples per second.

d. a and b only

e. All of the above

f. None of the above
