Look at the four “circuits” shown in Figure 17.6 and select those that will light the bulb.

To determine
Select those circuits from figure 17.6 which can light the bulbs.

Explanation

Given Info:

Current flows only when the circuit is complete. A circuit is complete only when the positive terminal of the batter is connected to one lead of the device and the negative terminal of the battery is connected to the other lead of the device.

Explanation:

Conclusion: The positive terminal of battery is connected to one lead of bulb and the negative terminal is connected to other lead. This arrangement creates a potential difference across the bulb. So bulb can glow. Thus, option(c) is correct.

The positive terminal of battery is connected to one lead of bulb and the negative terminal is connected to negative terminal of ammeter...
