when i connect signal generator and channel 1 to pin 1 of R1 and pin 2 of R2 as said in the document. and channel 2 to the pin 2 of R1 or pin 1 of R2. i am getting resistance of 33 ohm

It sounds like you are using Circuit A.

Make sure the Coax Termination is set to Open, and R ref is set to 47.

Please check, and let us know what you find. If you do a File/Save As.. and send us the .apc of your setup, we can check it, and make sure it is ok. Use

there is also another possibility.
If you have the Amplitude/Power in dB led turned on (top right of FRA control panel), the result will be in dBOhms. The reference is set in Settings/Analog Names and Units, and defaults to 1.

20 x log(47/1) = 33.4 Ohms. So perhaps you had this turned on. If so, the amplitude axis would have been in dBOhm.
