you are given "n" resistors of resistance R .these are connected first to get the minimum possible resistance,then connected to get maximum possible resistance .Then the ratio between minimum to maximum is (A)1/n^2 (1/n square) (B)1/n (C)n (D)n^2 (n square)

For minimum  possible resistance, the resistors are connected in parallel,
1/rp = 1/r + 1/r + .....n times
or rp = r/n
 
For maximum possible resistance, the resistors are connected in series,
 
rs = r+r+..... n times
rs = nr
ratio = rp/rs = 1/n2
