Answer :

mosfet are voltage controlled devices.Depending upon the Gate voltage the length of the channel can be varied accordingly in terms of increase or decrease.It is important to note however that the drain to source voltage also has an effect on mosfet considering it's characteristics which is also known as channel length modulation.
