    You have 5 resistors, all of which have different values. The resistors are 50, 40, 30, 20 and 10 ohms. Which of the following statements are true about combinations of these resistors?

    True False if you put all 5 resistors in parallel, the equivalent resistance will be greater than 50 ohms

    True False when the resistors are in parallel, the voltage across each resistor is the same

    True False for a given battery, the current through the circuit will be maximum if the resistors are all connected in parallel

    True False when the resistors are in series, the current that passes through each resistor is different

    True False if you put all 5 resistors in series, the equivalent resistance will be equal to 150 ohms
