    because circuit in the series have same current which you measure with ameter

    ammeter is just another element in series circuit. but it has very low resistance so it doesn't change the current of circirt

    If it were in parallel, it would almost certainly have a different current running through it vs. the circuit it was trying to measure, which would be useless. Hence putting it in series is the only option.
