Dear student, the EMF of the source is not given, so I assumed it 12 V (by looking at the options).

EMF of the source E = 12 V
There are two parallel branches of resistances (16+8=24 ohm, and 4+8=12 ohm) across the source.

For first branch (R_total ...

Solution Summary

There are two parallel branches of resistances (16+8=24 ohm, and 4+8=12 ohm) across the source.
