Expert Answer:

Dear Student
 
In parallel circuit the potential drop across the two resistors will be same (Say V).
 
Now V = iR = i1R1 = i2R2
 i1 / i= R2/R1 = 40/20 = 2.
 
That is, current through 20 ohms resistor is twice the current through 40 ohms resistor.
Resistor with higher resistance has a lower current flowing through it.
 
Hope that satisfies your query.
