    Solution:

    Concept: An electrical switch is wired so that while it is in the off position, there is no potential difference across the circuit's appliance.
    A live wire essentially denotes the presence of some current at its tip, whereas a neutral wire denotes the absence of current. The current in the circuit essentially flows when these two establish contact with each other across an electrical appliance, and the equipment begins to operate. We will determine the appropriate option from those offered based on the facts mentioned above.
    Hence, the correct option is  3 .
