1. Power used by Fan               = 1200 W
    Power used by Refrigerator  =  200 W
    Power used by two bulbs      = 120 W 
    Total Power                           = 1520 W
 
2. (a) current in refrigerator  = 200/240 = 5/6 A = 0.833 A
 
2. (b) Energy used by fan in 3 hours = 1.2 kW×3 hr= 3.6 kW-hr
                                                     = 1200×3×60×60 = 12.96 MJ 

2. (c) Resistance of filament       P = V2/R  or R = V2 / P = 240×240 / 60 = 960 Ω
