Answer :

When live wire comes in contact with neutral wire a large amount of current flows through it leading to short-circuiting. The resistance of circuit becomes very small thus a large number of current flows leading to the production of a large amount of heat thus may cause electric fires. This may damage our electrical appliances. We can also get electric shocks thus short-circuiting is dangerous.
