A capacitor is used to perform which of these in an electrical circuit?

A store an electrical charge
A capacitor in the most basic form is two electrical conductors separated by an insulator. When a charge passes through the conductors the positive charge is stored in one conductor, and the negative in the other. This causes the charge to be temporarily stored electrostatically.
B reduce current
C prevent shock
D increase voltage
