Solution

## The correct option is B 0.06VUsing Ohm's Law V=IRCurrent in the circuit = VReq, And Req=(20+10)ΩSo, I=330=0.1AGiven that resistance of 10m long potential wire is 20Ω⇒ Resistance of 30cm long wire = 20×3010×100=0.6ΩUsing Ohm's Law again, potential difference between two points = IR=0.1×0.6=0.06V.Therefore, B is correct option.
