Solution

ELECTRICAL appliances in a house are connected in PARALLEL as :

  1. Each appliance gets full voltage as resistance in parallel becomes low.
  2. If the fuse of one appliance fails it does not affect the working of other appliances.
  3. We can light one bulb without lighting the other bulbs.
