# Problem P. 4681. (November 2014)

P. 4681. The chain of resistors made of $\displaystyle 3N$ resistors as shown in the figure can be closed in two different ways. $\displaystyle a)$ The terminals at points $\displaystyle A$ and $\displaystyle C$ are connected and also the terminals at point $\displaystyle B$ and $\displaystyle D$ are connected.

$\displaystyle b)$ The terminals at points $\displaystyle A$ and $\displaystyle D$ are connected and also the terminals at $\displaystyle B$ and $\displaystyle C$ are connected. (Möbius band.)

In which case will the equivalent resistance of the system between $\displaystyle A$ and $\displaystyle B$ be greater?
