A metal wire of resistance ( 3 Omega ) is elongated to make a uniform wire of double its previous length. This new wire is now bent and ends joined to make a circle. If two points on this circle make an angle ( 60^{circ} ) at the centre, the equivalent resistance between these two points will be:
(A) ( frac{7}{2} Omega )
(B) ( frac{5}{3} Omega )
(C) ( frac{12}{5} Omega )
(D) ( frac{5}{2} Omega )

( R propto ell^{2} )
( R=12 Omega ) (new resistance of wire)
( R_{1}=2 Omega R_{2}=10 Omega )
( R_{e q}=frac{10 times 2}{10+2}=frac{5}{3} Omega )
