(b) in parallel

Work Step by Step

We know that if we combine identical batteries in parallel, the output voltage of the combination is equal to the voltage of any one of them. In this problem, when 1.5 V batteries are connected, the output voltage of the combination is 1.5 V. Therefore we conclude that the batteries are connected in parallel.
