Also please refer the following attachment too.Hello friends,
Find attached a problem involving symmetry in circuits involving resistors. Its been mentioned that by symmetry the current in part ab and ad will be equal.
The current i branches to part d, o and b at the same time. Then how could symmetry is applicable only in ad and ab not ao?

Are the resistors all the same value? That's critically important to know.Then how could symmetry is applicable only in ad and ab not ao?
Well, look at those two branches. Is there any reason for the current in one to be different than the current in the other?Also please refer the following attachment too.
Why there is symmetry as mentioned?
Thanks Mr.WBahn. By symmetry does it mean that the magnitude of current is same in every branch?Well, look at those two branches. Is there any reason for the current in one to be different than the current in the other?
Thanks. So what exactly symmetry means with respect to current, sir?Symmetry does not necessarily mean that the magnitude of the current is the same in every branch, just in those to which the particular symmetry argument applies.
