If three different resistors are connected in parallel and a voltage is applied across them, which of the following statements is correct?

The greatest resistance has the least power loss across three resistances.

Explanation

If three different resistances are connected in parallel and a voltage is applied across them then the voltage is same across all the resistances. The formula for finding power is P = VI = V(V/R) = (V^2/R). According to the formula, the resistor with the least value will have the maximum power loss and the resistor with the maximum value will have the least power loss.
