Consider two copper wires with the same cross-sectional area. Wire A is twice as long as wire B. How do the resistivities and resistances of the two wires compare?

Select one:

a. The wires have the same resistivity, but wire A has half the resistance of wire B.

b. Wire A has twice the resistivity of wire B, but the wires have the same resistance.

c. Wire A has half the resistivity and half the resistance of wire B.

d. Wire A has twice the resistivity of wire B, and wire A has twice the resistance of wire B

e. The wires have the same resistivity, but wire A has twice the resistance of wire B.
