Assume that a circuit has four equal resistors connected in parallel.

Further assume that two resistors are removed from the circuit, one at a time.

This action will result in a current

a.

decrease and a voltage increase.

b.

increase and a voltage decrease.

c.

decrease and no change in voltage.

d.

increase and no change in voltage.

8.

One characteristic of a parallel-resistive circuit made up of resistors

having different values is that the

a.

current is different through each resistor.

b.

current divides equally through each of the resistors.

c.

voltage across each resistor depends on the size of the resistor.

d.

voltage across each resistor is the value of the supply voltage

divided by the number of resistors.
