Expert Answer:

An ammeter is an instrument used to measure the magnitude of current flowing in the circuit.
It should be connected in series, so that the entire current of the circuit can pass through it.
An ammeter has low resistance so that the resistance in the circuit or the current in the circuit remains unchanged when it is inserted in the circuit.
