Answer :

On the basis of their electrical resistance, all the substance can be divided into three groups they are Good conductors, Resistors and Insulators.

Those substances which have very low electrical resistance are called as good conductors. A good conductor allows the electricity to flow through it easily. Silver is the best conductor of electricity. Copper and aluminum are also good conductors.


Those substances which have comparatively high resistance than conductors are known as resistors. The alloys like nichrome, manganin and constantan, all have quite high resistance, so these are resistors.


Those substances which have infinitely high electrical resistance are called insulators. E.g- rubber and wood.
