(a) Total resistance, R = 20 Ω + 4 Ω = 24 Ω
(b) Current through the circuit,
     I = V/R 
     I = 6/24
     I = 0.25 A
(c) Potential difference across the electric bulb,
 Vbulb = IRbulb
          = 5 V
(d) Potential difference across the resistance wire,
Vwire = IRwire
         `= 0.25xx4`
         =  1 V
