Circuit Current

APPH12-MNNBVU

The circuit shown below consists of a battery of negligible internal resistance and two resistors,
(${R}_{1} = \text{0.20 Ohms and } {R}_{2}=\text{0.20 Ohms}$). The resistance of the connecting wires is also negligible.

An ammeter connected at point W indicates 0.50 Amps ($W = \text{0.50 Amps}$).

What reading would an ammeter connected at point $Z$ indicate?
