41. Which one of the following statements is true for current flowing in a parallel circuit?

A. The amount of current flow through each branch of a parallel circuit can be different, depending on the resistance of each branch part and the amount of voltage applied to it
B. The same current always flows through every part of a parallel circuit
C. The total current in a parallel circuit is equal to the total voltage multiplied by the total resistance
