Expert Answer:

Dear student,

There are two advantages of connecting bulbs in parallel.

  1. They all get the full battery voltage so they're all bright
  2. They're all in their own conducting loop so you can turn one bulb off without affecting the others.

The problem with connecting two bulbs in series is that both bulbs are dim and if you turn one bulb off then they both go off.
