Statement 1: Two electric bulbs of 50 W and 100 W are given. When connected in series, 50 w bulb glows more but when connected in parallel, 100 W bulb glows more. Statement 2: In series combination, power is directly proportional to the resistance of circuit. But in parallel combination, power is inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit.

### Solution:

Resistance of 50 W bulb is two times the resistance of 100 W bulb. When bulbs are connected in series, 50 W bulb will glow more as P = i2R (current remains same in series). In parallel, the 100 W bulb will glow more as P = V2/R(potential difference remain same in parallel).  Register to Get Free Mock Test and Study Material
