Which device has high resistance voltmeter or ammeter?

Answer :

Voltmeter has very high resistance and ammeter has negligible resistance. This is because when voltmeter is connected in parallel across any two points, it will draw very less current (due to high resistance), hence it can measure the voltage accurately.
