CAN Current pass Through INDUCTOR?
how the AC circuit is completed when Inductor is in it as no AC pass through it????

The impedance of an inductor is $Z=j\omega L$. Since this is not infinite, AC current can pass through.

That depends on the value of inductance and the frequency of the AC current. If the inductance is small, low frequency AC signals can pass through.

I would think that you would have MORE of a problem with asking how a current can pass through a CAPACITOR in an AC circuit, since a capacitor is an actual, physical break in the circuit. An inductor, even though it can act as a choke, still provides a continuous physical path.
