what happens to negatively charged electrons in a circuit?

what can you say about the current in a series circuit?
it is the same wherever you measure it

where are ammeters placed when measuring current in a circuit?
in series

in a paralell circuit what happens to the current that returns to the cell?
it is the same as the current that leaves the cell at the start, it does not get used up by a circuit just the energy the electrons are carrying.
