I keep telling into him ( not mentioning the name ) that this is a parallel circuit but he always keep telling me that this is a series-parallel...

Someone tell me.
What circuit is it?

Is flow of current determine the kind of circuit?

Please also indicate proof that this is a _______ and also an explanation

i keep telling this to him but he said no books tells that it is parallel and he wants some proof.
Thanks.

You have 4 impedences in parallel.

Could you explain why it is parallel and not series parallel.

Is Z3 and Z4 is series? or not? Why?

Can you give me ways how to determine if a circuit is parallel or series by just looking on it?

Is the flow of current has something to do with determining the kind of circuit even there is no current given and only impedance?

I JUST HAVING A HARD TIME EXPLAINING THIS BUT I KNOW THIS IS PARALLEL...
