    If you are trying to setup a fixed current through any diode, is it better to use a low or a high source voltage. Explain your reasoning.

    I'm not trying to setup a fixed current in a diode, so why should I answer the question or explain my reasoning?

    It's possible you should consider the shape of a diode's voltage-current curve.
