1)A 2.0V battery is connected in a circuit with an ammeter and an unknown resistor, P. The current is observed to be 0.70 A. What would be the current in the circuit if a 12V battery replaces the 2.0V battery?
A)4.2 A
B)6.0 A
C)8.4 A
D)34 A
I got A
2)Which appliance consumes the most power?
A)tv. potential difference = 24 current = 0.75
B)drill. potential difference = 110 current = 1.6
C)bulb. potential difference = 12 current = 4.0
D)amplifier. potential difference = 110 current = 0.2
24^2/0.75
768
110^2/1.6
7562.5
12^2/4.0
36
110^2/0.2
60500
I got D

right on 1, but on 2) your work makes no sense.
Powerconsumed= V*I you are given v, and current for each . 
on 2) i don't understand do I just multiply potential difference and current and find the largest of the bunch?

yes, you are looking for the max power.

1) B

for the second one, B is the correct answer.
