A
The greatest resistance has the least power loss across three resistances.

Explaination

If three different resistances are connected in parallel and a voltage is applied across them then the voltage is same across all the resistances. The formula for finding power is $9247_w166_h41.png$ .According to the formula, the resistor with the least value will have the maximum power loss and the resistor with the maximum value will have the least power loss.
B The smallest resistance has the least power loss across three resistances.

C The greatest resistance has the maximum power loss across three resistances.

D Both the smallest and the greatest resistances have the same power losses.
