Homework Statement


if I have something looks like the photo attach, could I say that
R2 and R4 are in series?

It asks to compute the current through the R2 branch, but I am curious about these two resistors are in series or not.



Homework Equations

Series: connecting end to end
Parallel: connecting to two same node


The Attempt at a Solution
