**Hint:**Using the formula for inductor current of a LR circuit and the given boundary conditions, we will form relations between inductance, current and time. These will give us the correct choices.

**Formulae used:**Inductor current of a LR circuit: ${I_{ind}} = {I_o}((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - tL}}{R})$.

Where ${I_{ind}}$ is the inductor current and is expressed in Ampere $(A)$, ${I_o}$ is the circuital current and is expressed in Ampere $(A)$, $L$ inductance and is expressed in Henry $(H)$, $R$ is the resistance value and is expressed in Ohms $(\Omega )$ and $t$ is the time taken for the current to change and is expressed in seconds $(s)$.

Induction of an electromagnetic force: $E = L\dfrac{{di}}{{dt}}$

Where $L$ inductance and is expressed in Henry $(H)$, $di$ is the change in current and is expressed in Ampere $(A)$, $dt$ is the time taken for the current to change and is expressed in seconds $(s)$ and $E$ is the emf induced and is expressed in Volt $(V)$. This formula will be used for inductors $1$ and $2$.

**Complete step by step solution:**

When the switch $S$ is closed, current flows in the circuit due to the battery connected to it. The presence of the inductance coil creates a magnetic flux, which on changing, results in the induction of an electromagnetic force. This is represented by $E$ and is equal to $L\dfrac{{di}}{{dt}}$.

The potential difference across the two parallel connected inductors will be the same at any time $t$,

Therefore we can write,

${L_1}\dfrac{{d{i_1}}}{{dt}} = {L_2}\dfrac{{d{i_2}}}{{dt}}$

Where ${L_1},{L_2}$ are the inductances given and is expressed in Henry $(H)$, $d{i_1},d{i_2}$ are the change in current and is expressed in Ampere $(A)$, $dt$ is the time taken for the current to change and is expressed in seconds $(s)$.

On cancelling out the common factors we establish the relation

\[

\dfrac{{{L_1}}}{{{L_2}}} = \dfrac{{d{i_2}}}{{d{i_1}}} = \dfrac{{{I_{{2_t}}} - {I_2}_o}}{{{I_{{1_t}}} - {I_1}_o}} \\

\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{L_1}}}{{{L_2}}} = \dfrac{{{I_{{2_t}}}}}{{{I_{{1_t}}}}} \\

\]

Rearranging this and rewriting in general terms we get,

$\dfrac{{{I_1}}}{{{I_2}}} = \dfrac{{{L_2}}}{{{L_1}}}$

Now, applying the boundary condition at $t = 0$ we get inductor current,

$

{I_{ind}} = {I_o}((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - tL}}{R}) = {I_o}((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - 0L}}{R}) \\

\Rightarrow {I_{ind}} = 0 \\

$

Therefore at $t = 0$, ${I_{ind}} = 0$.

Now, dividing the inductor current equation by $t$ and applying the boundary conditions at ${t_o} \to \infty $ we get,

$

\Rightarrow {I_{ind}} = {I_o}((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - tL/t}}{{R/t}}) = {I_o}((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - L}}{{R/t}}) \\

\Rightarrow {I_{ind}} = {I_o}((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - L}}{{R/\infty }}) \\

$

As any value by infinity is infinitesimally small, $((1 - e)\dfrac{{ - L}}{{R/\infty }})$ is neglected and we get the value of ${I_{ind}}$ to be as follows,

${I_{ind}} = {I_o}$

This shows that at ${t_o} \to \infty $, the current passing through the inductor is maximum and equal to the circuital current. This proves that at that moment, the inductor current is independent of the values of inductances ${L_1},{L_2}$.

**In conclusion, the correct options are (A), (B) and (C).**

**Additional information:**A LR circuit is a circuit having a combination of inductor(s) and resistor(s). In AC circuits, they reduce voltage and in DC circuits, the inductor acts as a static resistance. Therefore, the circuit given in the above problem has AC connection because a resistor is present.

**Note:**The first boundary condition is at $t = 0$. Similarly, the second one is also at a particular instant of time, that is, $t = {t_\infty }$. Calculations are made to be considered at a given point of time.
