Solution :-

The safety measured commonly used in electric circuits are as follows:

(i) Fuse

Each circuit should be connected to a fuse because a fuse prevents the flow of excessive current through the circuit. When the current in the circuit exceeds the maximum limit of the fuse element, the fuse melts to stop the flow of current protecting the appliance connected to circuit.

(ii) Earthing

Earthing protects the user from electric shocks. Any leakage of current in an appliance is transferred to ground by earthing and the people using the appliance is prevented from getting electrocuted.
