I bought few LDRs to test things out,but the problem is, even when its exposed to low intensity evening light, the resistance hits zero.
Even in bright light an LDR's resistance is not zero. Show us your circuit and a part number/data sheet for the device.
Even I thought the same, but my multimeter proved me wrong. Even the evening Sun (4 PM) made the resistance 0.
Am I missing something?
Probably. What scale is your multimeter set to? What does the data sheet say the dark resistance is supposed to be? Is it shorted out?
I checked it with 2K ohms and 200 ohms as well. Says 0 when I point to the sun (evening sun) and like 10 when I turn it away to the other side.
No, its not shorted out :) Since I just bought it from a nearby shop as is,(they are sold loose), I dont have any model no. or datasheet :(
