Ammeter Connected in Short Circuit?

Ammeter Basic Concept: Ampere meter Connected in Short Circuit?

Ampere meter is connected in series with load. if there is also a short path, then what will be the current in Amp-Meter? (As shown Below)Ammeter Basic Concept

Current will be Zero (0) Because all ampere (Flow of Charge) will directly move to short Circuited path, Because amperes (Flow of Charge) take easiest way to move.
So in this case, current will not flow in the load, so the reading of Ampere-Meter will be Zero.

The flow of electron will be in this way.

But Remember: This is a short circuit, So never ever try it to make at home or elsewhere. This is only for clearing the basic concepts about Electrical and Electronics Engineering interviews Questions and Answersammeter: Ampere meter Connected in Short Circuit?
