a) total voltage in the circuit is zero

b) current in each resistance will divide equally

c) voltage across each resistor will divide equally

c) current will be zero

Ans: b)

Explanation: b) Since the magnitude of current is equal as resistances are of magnitude, current in each resistance will divide equally.

**Q.15) Resistance ‘P’ and ‘Q’ connected in series gives total resistance of 90 Ω, and if same resistances are connected in parallel effective resistance is 20 Ω, then values of P and Q are…..**

a) 45 Ω, 45 Ω

b) 10 Ω, 80 Ω

c) 50 Ω, 40 Ω

d) 60 Ω, 30 Ω

Ans: d)

Explanation: d) here in first condition, R_s = P + Q = 90 Ω……….(1)

By second condition,

∴PQ = 900

∴P (90-P )= 1800

∴90 P-P^{2} =1800

∴P^{2} -90 P+1800=0

∴ (P-60)(P-30)=0

∴P = 60 or P = 30

∴ Q = 30 or Q = 60
