# A uniform wire of resistance $100\: ohms$ is cut into 10 equal parts and are connected in parallel to each other. The equivalent resistance of the combination is

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;1\Omega & \quad (B)\;10\Omega \\ (C)\;100\Omega & \quad (D)\;1000\Omega \end {array}$

Resistance of each piece is $10\: ohms. \: 10$ such pieces are connected in parallel
$\Rightarrow$ Equivalent resistance = $1ohm$
Ans : (A)
