As we learnt in

Wheat stone Bridge -

It is an arrangement of four resistances which can be used to measure one of them in terms of rest

- wherein




This is a Wheatstone bridge.

If   \rho _{l}   is the resistance per unit length (in cm)

\frac{20\rho _{l}}{55}= \frac{80\rho _{l}}{R}\: \: or \: \: R= \frac{80\times 55}{20}= 220\Omega

Option 1)

Option 2)

13.75 \Omega

Option 3)

220 \Omega

This option is correct.

Option 4)
