This problem tests our knowledge of circuits containing resistors in parallel.
When unequal resistors are connected in parallel in a circuit,
|A.the largest resistance has the largest current through it.|
|B.the power generated in each resistor is the same.|
|C.the potential drop is always the same across each resistor.|
|D.the same current always runs through each resistor.|
