Judge the equivalent resistance when the following are connected in parallel.
(a) 1 Omega and 10^6 Omega
(b) 1 Omega and 10^8 Omega and 10^6 Omega.

(a) Approximately 1 Omega (but less than 1 Omega). This is due to the reason that in parallel combination of resistors, the equivalent resistance is lesser than the least resistance (in this case, 1 Omega).
(b) Approximately 1 Omega (but less than 1 Omega). Same reason as in (a).
