Read the paragraph and answer the questions 46 to 50:

Microwave tubes are used as microwave amplifiers and oscillators. Three general type of microwaves tubes in which third type of tubes are useful. In this tube there is an interaction between an electron and an RF field is continuous. The Travelling Wave Tube (TWT) is the prime example of this interaction. It is an amplifier whose oscillator counterpart is called Backward Wave Oscillator (BWO). Another group of tube in which a magnetic field ensures a constant electron beam – RF field interaction and this is complimented by the cross-field amplifier (CFA). Multi-cavity Klystron is used as an amplifier of microwaves and it consists of buncher cavity and cache cavity. The Reflex Klystron is a low power and low efficiency microwave oscillator. Reflex Klystron oscillator has been replaced by various semiconductor oscillators.
