Solution

In a parallel circuit, if the filament of one lamp breaks, it will have no effect on the other lamp. If the same happens in a series circuit, the other lamp will stop glowing. This is because in a series circuit, if one of the bulbs blows off, the circuit is broken and the power supply to the other bulb is cut off.
