Q. What will happen to the current in a circuit if a voltmeter mistaken as ammeter is inserted into the circuit ?

A voltmeter has a very high resistance and hence if inserted into a circuit instead of an ammeter which has negligiable resistance it will increase the total resistance of the circuit many times causing the current to drop to almost zero or to a very low value
