A student investigated how the current in a resistor varies with the potential difference
across the resistor.
Figure 1 shows part of the circuit used.
Figure 1
0 1 . 1 The student connected an ammeter and a voltmeter into the circuit.
What is the correct way to connect the ammeter and the voltmeter

I think the question is asking if would you connect them in series or parallel, and in that case the ammeter goes in series and the voltmeter in parallel.

Hope this helps

This is d pic
x is connected in series
y is connected in parallel

this along with the fact that an ammeter is always connected in series and a voltmeter is always connected in parallel should help you solve this question

i would also advise you to maybe make flashcards to remember how an ammeter is connected and how a voltmeter is connected (and know what a series circuit and parallel circuit looks like) because series circuits and parallel circuits often come up in exams and stuff. hope this helps!
