More than no load terminal voltage
Equal to no-load terminal voltage
Negligibly low
For a given torque, reduction of the field turns of a D.C series motor
Increases its speed but armature current remains the same
Decreases its speed, armature current remains the same
Decreases its speed, demanding less armature current
