Best answer

Correct option is A) 6% 

We know R = \({V \over I}\)

\(\therefore{{\Delta R} \over R} = {{\Delta V} \over V} + {{\Delta I} \over I}\)
Percentage error in R =\({{\Delta R} \over R} \times 100 = {{\Delta V} \over V} \times 100 + {{\Delta I} \over I} \times 100\)

\(\therefore{{\Delta R} \over R} \times 100 =\) 3% + 3 % = 6%
