Current distribution in the circuit is assumed as shown in figure.

If we apply Kirchoff's voltage law to the closed loop ADCEFA , we get the following equation

4 i2 + 3 ( i2 + i3 ) + ( i1 + i2 ) = 4   ..............................(1)

If we apply Kirchoff's voltage law to the closed loop ABCEFA , we get the following equation

i1 + 2 ( i1 - i3 ) + ( i1 + i2 ) = 4 ..............................(2)

By subtracting eqn.(2) from eqn.(1) , we get

7 i2 - 3 i1 + 5 i3 = 0   or    7 i2 + 5 i3 =  3 i1  ......................... (3)

If we apply Kirchoff's voltage law to the closed loop  BDCB , we get the following equation

5 i3 + 3 ( i2 + i3 ) + 2 ( i1 - i3 ) = 0

By simplifying above expression we get , 3 i2 + 10 i3 = 2 i1 ......................(4)

By solving eqn.(3) and (4) , we get  i2 = (4/11) i1  and  i3 = (1/11) i1

By substituting i2 and i3 in eqn.(1) , we get  i1 =  (22/23) A

Hence i2 = (4/11) × (22/23) A = ( 8 / 23 ) A    and    i3 = ( 1/11) × (22/23) A = ( 2 / 23 ) A

Voltage drop across 1Ω resistor between A and B = 1 × ( 22/23)  =  (22 / 23 ) V = 0.956 V

Voltage drop across 2Ω resistor between B and C = 2 × [ ( 22/23) - (2/23) ]  =  (40 / 23 ) V = 1.739 V

Voltage drop across 3Ω resistor between D and C = 3 × [ ( 8/23) + (2/23) ]  =  (30 / 23 ) V = 1.304 V

Voltage drop across 4Ω resistor between A and D = 4 × (8/23) ]  =  (32 / 23 ) V = 1.391 V

Voltage drop across 5Ω resistor between B and D = 5 × (2/23)  =  (10 / 23 ) V = 0.435 V

Voltage drop across 1Ω resistor between E and F = 1 × [ ( 22/23) + (8/23) ]  =  (30 / 23 ) V = 1.304 V
