An ammeter is connected in series with circuit elements.
A voltmeter is connected in parallel with a circuit element.
For this diagram, include three extra circuit symbols:
A. An ammeter measuring the current at point A
B. A voltmeter measuring the voltage drop across the topmost resistor (the one in parallel with the topmost bulb)
C. An ammeter measuring the current through the rightmost resistor
