Belt/chain drive is not regarded as a single link, they make what is known as a higher pair, & it is considered as an equivalent to two lower pairs(or kinematic link).

Belt pulley is a higher pair because it has line contact & no slippage(ideally)
Thanxx...
Belt/chain drive is not regarded as a single link
That did solve my confusion...
and
ya..they do make a higher pair...
But can u tell me where can I find[or can u give/write] me a document which explains how the "Chain-Sproket" Kinematic pair results in a constrained motion with a single Degree of Freedom...

any help appreciated...
