As we have learnt

Sign Convention - - wherein

Applying kirchoffs voltage law

$-1*i+10-4-2*i-3i=0\Rightarrow i= 1 A(a..to..b ..via ..e)$

Current = V/R = (10-4)/6=1 ampere

Option 1)

$\frac{7}{}3$ A from a to b through e

Option 2)

$\frac{7}{}3$ A from b to a through e

Option 3)

1A from b to a through e

Option 4)

1A from a to b through e
