HINT:  For parallel circuit resistors .....(they all have the same voltage applied across them) the smaller the resistor, the larger the current

ops looks like A is imconplete sorry,

so it would then be  I 2 < I1 ?

R2 is the smaller and thus I2 will be the larger

oh okay, yes that makes sense!!! im sorry i got a bit confused.

R1 > R2

Resistance of 1 is greater than Resistance of 2

The higher the resistance, the more it resists the flow of current.

So less current will be able to flow through the larger resistor.

I2 > I1
