For the circuit shown in the figure, the voltage and current expressions are
$$v\left( t \right) = {E_1}\sin \left( {\omega t} \right) + {E_3}\sin \left( {3\omega t} \right)$$ and
$$i\left( t \right) = {{\rm I}_1}\sin \left( {\omega t - {\varphi _1}} \right) + {{\rm I}_3}\sin \left( {3\omega t - {\varphi _3}} \right) + {{\rm I}_5}\sin \left( {5\omega t} \right)$$

The average power measured by the Wattmeter is

A
$${1 \over 2}{E_1}{{\rm I}_1}\cos {\phi _1}$$
B
$${1 \over 2}\left[ {{E_1}{{\rm I}_1}\cos {\phi _1} + {E_1}{{\rm I}_3}\cos {\phi _3} + {E_1}{{\rm I}_5}} \right]$$
C
$${1 \over 2}\left[ {{E_1}{{\rm I}_1}\cos {\phi _1} + {E_3}{{\rm I}_3}\cos {\phi _3}} \right]$$
D
$${1 \over 2}\left[ {{E_1}{{\rm I}_1}\cos {\phi _1} + {E_3}{{\rm I}_1}\cos {\phi _1}} \right]$$
