Why is it that the magnitude of magnetomotive force required for air gap is much greater than that required for iron part of a magnetic circuit?

A. Because air is a gas

B. Because air has the highest relative permeability

C. Because air is a conductor of magnetic flux

D. Because air has the lowest relative permeability
