if thermo couple ammeter full scale deflection is 10 Amp, for 1/5 th scale what is the Reading?

What I think brahma211 means is a heated junction type ammeter. The current through the ammeter heats a thermocouple indirectly which of course generates a thermocouple voltage which is measured. The type of ammeter has no consequence on 1/5th scale of a 10 amp full scale meter. It should not take more than 4th or 5th grade math to figure this one out.
