A cell, a resistor, a key, and ammeter - Teachoo.jpg

Answer:

In circuits where components are connected in series , the amount of current flowing through the circuit is not affected by the order in which components are connected.

Therefore, In all the 3 given circuits, the current recorded in the ammeter will be the same

So, the correct answer is (d).
