we know that in a transistor we have three types of regions: EMITTER, COLLECTOR, BASE, and we know that emitter is highly doped, so charge carriers are very high, so resistance is very less, and on the other side collector is moderately doped so charge carriers are less, so resistance is very high. So from the above concept we conclude that in a transistor current is flowing from low resistance to high resistance. for example the 100 electrons are moving from emitter to base, in base only some (4 electrons) of the electrons are neutralized, and remaining 96 electrons are moved to collector terminal through high resistance path. so now same current flowing through high resistance so voltage amplified.
