Two resistors of resistance R1 and R2 having R1 > R2 are connected in parallel. For equivalent resistance R, the correct statement is 

(1) R>R1+R2

(2) R1<R<R2

(3) R2<R<(R1+R2)

(4) R < R1

(4) Equivalent resistance of parallel resistors is always less than any of the member of the resistance system.
