24.

Kirchhoff's current law for parallel circuits states that the:

 [A]. sum of all branch voltages equals zero [B]. total circuit resistance is less than the smallest branch resistor [C]. sum of currents into a junction is equal to the difference of all the branch currents [D]. sum of the total currents flowing out of a junction equals the sum of the total currents flowing into that junction

 M.Muthuselvi said: (Jul 10, 2013) KCL denotes that Sum of incoming current is equal to sum of outgoing current. In a parallel circuit all branch voltages are equal.

 Aman said: (Jul 3, 2018) But, numerically 2 option is also right. As if we have, 5ohm, 10ohm and 15ohm resistance in parallel. The net R= 2.5ohm which is smaller than the smallest resistance 5ohm in the circuit.
