To determine
The difference in the wiring for the two sets.

Explanation

In series circuit, the current across each resistance is the same. In parallel circuit, the voltage across each resistance is the same.

For set A, even if one bulb is removed, the others still glow. This means, the bulbs are connected in parallel combination, since the potential difference is same across the bulbs for it to glow...
