Expert Answer:

Yes. The current does not change because this is the maximum current that is drawn from the cell.
 
When, the resistance changes from R to X, the current does not change but the potential drop across the resistance changes.
 
Due to this change in potential drop, the balancing length changes and hence we can find the new balancing length.
