(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Which of the following circuits could be reduced to a single resistance and a battery by determining the equivalent resistance using combinations of resistors in series and parallel?

A. II and IV only

B. I and II only

C. II and III only

D. I and III only

E. I and IV only

2. Relevant equations

Parallel: 1/Req = 1/R1+1/R2+...

Series: Req= R1+R2+....

3. The attempt at a solution

I think 3 and 4 can be eliminated because it seems impossible that you can reduce those to just one resistor.

So I'm thinking the answer is I and II only, but I'm unsure.
