In an I-Vgraph of four resistors, current is taken on y-axis and voltage is taken on x-axis. If all the four resistors are of same lenth and same material, then how can we find which resistor has the minimum and which has the maximum cross-sectional area?

The slope of v-i graph gives=?I/?V=1/R
so that means more slope less R in this graph.
if the length and material same for all then :
least slope means that is for the conductor which has maximum resistance.
Maximum R mens that conductor will have least cross sectional area, ie, thinest.
so the conductor which has least slope will be thinnest.
theconductor which has max slope will be thickest.
