Choice C.

Work Step by Step

The number of charges per second (i.e, current) that flows in is the same that flows out of the resistor. Net charge does not build up inside the resistor. For a circuit with a single branch, the current is the same at every point. The amount of current flowing through the lightbulb is identical to the amount that flows through the battery.
