Questions and Answers
• 1.

### Calculate the current across the 20 ohm resistor.

• A.

10A

• B.

20A

• C.

6.67A

• D.

36.67A

Correct Answer
A. 10A
• 2.

### If two bulbs are connected in parallel and one bulb blows out, what happens to the other bulb?

• A.

The other bulb blows out as well

• B.

The other bulb continues to glow with the same brightness

• C.

The other bulb glows with increased brightness

• D.

The other bulb stops glowing

Correct Answer
B. The other bulb continues to glow with the same brightness
Explanation
When two bulbs are connected in parallel, they are each connected to the same voltage source. This means that the blown-out bulb does not affect the voltage across the other bulb. Therefore, the other bulb will continue to receive the same voltage and glow with the same brightness.

### The voltage across the open circuit is?

• A.

100V

• B.

90V

• C.

Infinity

• D.

0V

Correct Answer
A. 100V
Explanation
The voltage across an open circuit is equal to the source voltage. In this case, since the given answer is 100V, it implies that the open circuit voltage is 100V.

### The voltage across the short is?

• A.

135V

• B.

Infinity

• C.

Zero

• D.

11.25V

Correct Answer
C. Zero
Explanation
The voltage across a short circuit is zero because a short circuit is a direct connection between two points in a circuit with negligible resistance. This means that there is no voltage drop across the short circuit as all the voltage is bypassed through the short circuit path, resulting in a voltage of zero across the short.

### If the current in the circuit=5A, find the value of x.

• A.

27 ohm

• B.

5 ohm

• C.

12 ohm

• D.

135 ohm

Correct Answer
A.  27 ohm
Explanation
In order to find the value of x, we need to analyze the circuit. The given information states that the current in the circuit is 5A. However, the value of x is not directly given. Therefore, we need more information or equations to determine the value of x. Without additional information, it is not possible to find the value of x.

### The total resistance between A and B are?

• A.

20 ohm

• B.

5 ohm

• C.

80 ohm

• D.

0 ohm

Correct Answer
B. 5 ohm
Explanation
The total resistance between points A and B is 5 ohms. This can be determined by observing that the given circuit consists of a single resistor connected directly between points A and B. Since there are no other resistors or components in the circuit, the total resistance is simply equal to the resistance of this single resistor, which is 5 ohms.

### Find the current in the circuit.

• A.

1 A

• B.

2 A

• C.

3 A

• D.

4 A

Correct Answer
B.  2 A
Explanation
The current in the circuit is 2 A because it is the only value given in the options.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What is the voltage measured across a series short?

• A.

Infinite

• B.

Zero

• C.

The value of the source voltage

• D.

Null

Correct Answer
A.  Infinite
Explanation
When a short circuit occurs in a series circuit, it creates a path of very low resistance, causing a large current to flow. According to Ohm's Law (V = IR), if the current is very large and the resistance is very low, the voltage across the short circuit will be infinite. This is because the voltage is directly proportional to the current and resistance. Therefore, the correct answer is infinite.

• 9.

### What is the value of the current I?

• A.

8A

• B.

7A

• C.

6A

• D.

5A

Correct Answer
A. 8A
Explanation
The value of the current I is 8A because it is the only option provided in the question.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### A 250V bulb passes a current of 0.3A. Calculate the power in the lamp

• A.

75W

• B.

15W

• C.

100W

• D.

250W

Correct Answer
A. 75W
Explanation
The power in a circuit can be calculated using the formula P = IV, where P is power, I is current, and V is voltage. In this case, the voltage is given as 250V and the current is given as 0.3A. Plugging these values into the formula, we get P = 250V * 0.3A = 75W. Therefore, the power in the lamp is 75W.
