Given,
 Resistance = R
 length = l
Area of cross section = A
when the wire is stretched to 2l
length become = 2l 
Area of the cross-section will be A/2
The new resistance of wire
R_{n}= 4R
then the wire is cut into three-piece of the same length
then the new length of each piece = \frac{l}{3}
then Resistance of each piece = \frac{R_{n}}{3}= \frac{4}{3}R
When three such resistance are connected in parallel

Net Resistance = \frac{4}{9}R
