6.      The emf and the internal resistance of a battery are as shown. When the terminal voltage of the battery is 20V , the current which passes through the battery including direction is closest to :  
Solution :  6 A , from a to b.

is it correct ?

What are you asking here?
You probaly need to use Ohm's law and Kirchoff's Laws

V = IR
so
I = V/R

V=20V
Internal resistance R = 20/6 v/A?

JR2003 , are u asking me ? or this is the answer ?    
"...R = 20/6 v/A?    "

You haven't described the circuit.
Is there anything else in the circuit apart from a wire with no resistance and a battery with internal resistance?

sorry my fault..

R=2 Ohm
battery is 12V

V=IR
so
I=V/R
= 12/2
=6 Amps

based on that diagram
V = IR
12V = 6A 2Ohm
but where does the 20V come in

In one place you said 12V, in another place you say 20V
Was one of them wrong, or were they measured at different places?

which side of the battery terminal is positive/negative?
How is the 20V applied to the battery (eg: positive to positive, or positive to negative)?

If 20V is applied to the battery as shown, then
point C has 8 V over point B
V=IR
8 V = I * 2 Ohm    =>   I = 4A (from A to B)
(the current through the ideal battery part and the battery resistance part are equal)

any ideas ?  i have two solutions here , one with 6 A and one with 4 A..which one is the correct ?

note: the emf of the battery is 12 V but the we want to find the the current when the terminal voltage of the battery is 20V

any ideas?
