Correct Answer - Option 2 : in parallel

The correct answer is in parallel.

  • The different electrical appliances in a domestic circuit are connected in parallel.
  • It has the following advantages
    • If one electrical appliance stops working due to some defect, then all other appliances keep working properly.
    • Each electrical appliance has its own switch due to which it can be turned on or turned off independently, without affecting other appliances.
    • Each electrical appliance gets the same voltage as that of the power supply line.
  • The potential difference across each appliance is equal to the supplied voltage in a parallel connection.
