    This are the options that applies:

    1. Two resistors in parallel can be placed in series with the third.

    2. Two resistors in series can be placed in parallel with the third.

    3. The resistors can all be connected in series.

    4. The resistors can all be connected in parallel.

    Explanation:

    In an electric circuit, resistors can be connected across each one another either in parallel or in series. Also a series connected resistors can be connected across parallel resistors and parallel connected resistors can be connected across resistors in series in a single circuit.

    The net equivalent resistance of this connections is a single resistance that combines all the resistances in a given circuit hence this net resistance cannot be connected across either a series or parallel connected circuits since it is a combination of one or more resistances.

    Based on the conclusion above, the following statements are true.

    1. Two resistors in parallel can be placed in series with the third.

    2. Two resistors in series can be placed in parallel with the third.

    3. The resistors can all be connected in series.

    4. The resistors can all be connected in parallel.

    The other options are false as we cannot connect net resistances to any circuit arrangements.

    Two resistors in parallel can be placed in series with the third.

    Two resistors in series can be placed in parallel with the third.

    The resistors can all be connected in series.

    The resistors can all be connected in parallel.

    Explanation:

    When we want to connect three resistors in a circuit, four options are open to us; these options are:

    Two resistors in parallel can be placed in series with the third.

    Two resistors in series can be placed in parallel with the third.

    The resistors can all be connected in series.

    The resistors can all be connected in parallel.

    In each case we obtain an equivalent or net resistance. We cannot connect the resistors to the equivalent resistance since the equivalent resistance is obtained from the arrangement of the three resistors in each case.
