In Finite Element Method (FEM), for discretization purpose in general, a refined mesh is employed in areas where changes in geometry, boundary conditions, loading, material properties or solution are present.

(a) True

(b) False

This question was addressed to me by my school principal while I was bunking the class.

I'm obligated to ask this question of Some Comments on Mesh Generation and Imposition of Boundary Conditions topic in section Single Variable Problems of Finite Element Method
