SInce the angle subtended is 60 degrees at the apex and both the sides are equal in length, the top of the letter A will make an equilateral triangle. hence all the three sides will be 10 3 cm each and correspondingly will have a resistance of 3 ohms each.The top triangle in A can be considered as 2 resistors of 3 ohms in series and 1 resistor of 3 ohm in parallel. Effective resistance of this traingle becomes 6/3 = 2 ohms. Now the effective circuit is 3 resistors of 3, 2 and 3 in series. Hence effective resistance is 8 = 8 ohms
