    Hi guys, as shown below, Ive attempted the question using the formula I = V/R. And calculated that having a bulb with lowest resistance in parallel gives the highest current however the homework interface im using seems to be telling me it's the wrong answer as shown below. Please help and tell what would be the right answer to the question. Thanks

    I think the problem is that the instructions said to be careful NOT to create a short circuit and with the bulb where you have placed it you have short circuited the battery.
