## The voltmeter reading will be 35.7 volt

Explanation:The resistor 1000 ohm and 4000 ohm are connected in parallel .

Their combined resistance is supposed R₁

Thus = +

or R₁ = 800 ohm

Therefore the total resistance in circuit is = 2000 + 800 = 2800 ohm

Because these are in series .

We can find current flowing through the circuit I = = =

here R is total resistance .

The potential difference across 1000 ohm = x 1000 = 35.7 volt

Thus voltmeter reading will be 35.7 volt
