Expert Answer:

The substance have high resistance because they have high viscocity.
More the viscocity ,more will be the resistance and vice versa.
 
The Viscosity of a substance is its 'Resistance to Flow'.
A high Viscosity means the substance is very thick, like Treacle or Honey or Tar and won't flow easily.
Gasoline, water and other light substances, have a low viscosity; They will flow easily.
