    Answer: Option C) 3A

    Explanation:

    Given that,

    Voltage = 90.0 Volts

    Current I = ?

    R1 = 5.0Ω

    R2 = 10.0Ω

    R3 = 15.0Ω

    Since the resistors are connected in series, the total resistance (Rtotal) of the circuit is the sum of each resistance.

    i.e Rtotal = R1 + R2 + R3

    Rtotal = 5.0Ω + 10.0Ω + 15.0Ω = 30.0Ω

    Then, apply the formula for ohms law

    Voltage = Current x resistance

    V = I x Rtotal

    90.0V = I x 30.0Ω

    I = 90.0V / 30.0Ω

    I = 3 Amps (Amps is the unit of current)

    Thus, the current in the circuit is 3 Amps
