Answer : 8 ohms

The Two arms have resistances 32 ohm and are in parallel, Their effective resistance is 1 ohms. This is in parallel with the middle arm. So the effective resistance is 8 ohms.

 

OR

The three arms have resistances 32, 1 and 32 respectively and are in parallel. Therefore, taking their reciprocals and adding will give the answer.
