Expert Answer:

Parallel combination is when positive plate of one cell is connected to positive plates of all the other cells and negative plate is connected to negative plates of all the other cells.
This combination can be viewed as one single positive plate on one side and one single negative plate on the other, i.e. positive plates connected together act as single positive plate and negative plates act like single negative plate.
Hence, the e.m.f. of cells connected in parallel is same as individual e.m.f. of each cell.
