Golsh, exactly true.

V = IR.

Now 2*v = 2*I*R.

We know that when resistance is high then small amount of current can pass but when resistance is low then high amount of current can pass.

So here as the current will be multiplied by 2 not R. Thus, option D is correct.

Now 2*v = 2*I*R.

V=IR.

Multiply 2 both side.

2V = 2IR.

Voltage and current varies not resistance.

So,

2V =(2I)R.

Multiply 2 both side.

2V = 2IR.

Voltage and current varies not resistance.

So,

2V =(2I)R.

Here R constant but current is variable so current double.

V=IR

I=V/R

I=2V/2R-->V/R

Current remains same while in our case resistance is doubles.

I=V/R

I=2V/2R-->V/R

Current remains same while in our case resistance is doubles.
