How is the division of the current for all passive elements?

    The current always prefers the path with minor resistance, but how the current reacts wrt the inductance and capacitance?

    with inductance and capacitance, the concept of resistance broadens to that of "reactance", which you should look up.

    So for inductors and capacitors, the current prefers the path with minor reactance?
