Solution

## The correct option is C 33kΩThe resistance can be calculated with a help of the colour coding chart.The colour of the first band indicates the first significant figure, the colour of the second band indicates the second significant figure and the colour of the third band indicates the multiplier to be used. Thus, the resistance of a carbon resistor with three orange bands would be:3 (orange) 3(orange) x 1000 (orange) = 33,000 ohmsThe maximum value of resistance =33×103Ω=33kΩ
