(a) The equivalent resistance of two resistances 1 Omega and 10^(6)Omega connected in parallel will be less than 1 Omega. This is because when a number of resistances are connected in parallel, then their equivalent resistance is less than the smallest individual resistance (which is 1 Omega in this case).
(b) The equivalent resistance of three resistances 1 Omega, 10^(3)Omega and 10^(6)Omega connected in parallel will be less than 1 Omega.
