1. As R decreases, the total series resistance through R2 and R decreases, thus allowing more current to pass. Assuming r (the resistance in series with V) to be small in comparison to the other resistances, then the circuit is modeled as parallel resistances – if the current through r2/R goes up, then the current through R1 must go down. 2. Need the resistances of the three bulbs, then reduce the circuit by parallel/series arguments. Bulb A: P = R*I^2 -> R = 24. Bulb B: P = V^2/R -> R = 160. Bulb C: V = I*R -> R = 240. B || C -> (1/240 + 1/160)^-1 -> 96. 96 in series with Bulb A gives 120 ohms. 3. The correct statement is that modern household plugs have 3 prongs, two of which are connected to ground wires. The problems with the other statements: A) Each device plugged into a receptacle must have the full voltage provided
