Answer:Step-by-step explanation:let r1=2ohms r2=3 ohms

if resistors are connected in series

r=r1+r2

r=2+3

r=5 ohm

if resistors are in parallel

1/r=1/r1 + 1/r2

1/r=1/2 + 1/3

1/r=3/6 + 2/6

1/r= 5/6

r=6/5

r=1.2 ohms

∴The least resistance is found when they are connected in parallel. The least resistance is 1.2 ohm
