Which of the following statements is/are correct?

  • With an analog voltmeter, it does not matter how we connect the positive and negative terminals across the resistor or voltage source.

  • An analog voltmeter can damage the pointer due to an incorrectly selected measuring range.

  • Only DC voltage can be measured with a universal measuring instrument.

  • The voltage of one section on the voltmeter scale is determined by dividing the total measuring range of the voltmeter by the corresponding number of scale sections.
