The correct answer to this question is D, Resistors connected in parallel. Resistors are in parallel when the terminals are connected to the terminal of other resistors.

Parallel resistors take on more than one path. This is because there are multiple paths for each current. In a parallel circuit, the resistors R1, r2, and R3 are all connected.

On all of their terminals, resistors in parallel share the same voltage. Resistors, in parallel, have many unique characteristics. One is that all resistors must add up to i. Another is that voltage, abbreviated v, shows up on all of the resistors.
