The circuit below is both series and parallel. If you look closely you will see that the two bulbs are in series with each other whilst the motors are an parallel. All the components provide a clear path for the current.

   

   

 

   

QUESTIONS:

1. What will happen if one of the motors fails to function? Will the entire circuit fail?

2. Draw another example of a circuit that is both series and parallel.
