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

(1) $R>{R}_{1}+{R}_{2}$

(2) ${R}_{1}

(3) ${R}_{2}

(4) R < R1

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