Applying to Kirchoff's voltage law,

For loop A-B-D-E-A we get,

-RI -10I + 10 = 0

→ 10 = RI +10I ...(1)

Applying Kirchoff's voltage law for loop F-A-B-C-F,
-2 - RI + 5 I2 = 0

→5 I2 - RI = 2 ...(2)

We know,

by Kirchoff's current law,
I1 = I + I2
→ I2 = I1 - I

Substituting it in equation (2),

5 (I1 - I) - RI = 2 ... (3)
multiplying equation (3) by '2'

10I1 - 10I- 2 IR = 4 ...(4)

Subtracting equation (4) from (1),

RI +10I1       = 10
- ]      10I1 - 10I- 2 IR = 4
(-)    (+)    (+)
3RI + 10 I = 6      ...(5)

Equation (5) can be written as,

By Ohm's law,
Veff= I (R + Reff)
Comparing thios equation with (6),

Veff= 2 Volt and Reff = 10/3 = 3.33 Ω

The equivalent circuit for figure (1) is,
