I have a question i really do not have a clue. Its about an electrical circuit.

Imagine the circuite goes round in a square. Starting with the CELL(battery) across & down to an LED, under which is my point X, down and across between this bottom line & the top line is a VARIABLE RESISTOR connecting just after the CELL continue on the bottom line is my point Y, then a RESISTOR. Underneath the resistor is my point Z. Along and up to a LAMP which continues round back to the CELL.

At which point x,y or z would you insert an ammeter?
And at which points (x,y, or z) would you insert a voltmeter?

Could any1 please offer me any guidence. Many thanks
