C. Use of stabilizers

D. Use of electric meter

Answer :

An electric fuse is wire which is made of a material of high resistance and low melting point. Using an electric fuse prevents the flow of unduly high electric current and protects the appliances from the damage. Due to Joule heating, the fuse melts to break the electric circuit. So, use of fuse is the most important method used for protecting home appliances from short circuiting or overloading.
