You can think of the resistance as a kind of friction. You can limit the flow of charge in a circuit. Hindering the flow allows you to regulate the amount of current flow through the device. The resistance is the answer, the letter A. If you take into account the voltage, but also can regulate the current by the choice of a power source, when speaking of the charge that flows IN the circuit given a specific power source, is the resistance that will moderate the flow.
