How does current exactly vary with the resistance in the circuit?

Expert Answer:

Let a current of x amp flow through a circuit that has 5 ohm resistance. Now, if the 5 ohm resistance is replaced by a 7 ohm resistance, then the current in the circuit will become less than x amp. So, the full current in the circuit decreases with the increase in resistance. Current is not “used up” as charges pass through a resistance.
