Why does the resistors when connected in  parallel increase the current?They should stop the current because they are the resistors.

Expert Answer:

When resistors are connected in parallel, the net resistance through the circuit decreases.
Decrease in resistance causes more current to flow through the circuit in accordance with Ohm's laaw I = V/R. Hence, resistors connected in parallel increase the current in the circuit.
