I'm not sure what you mean by that question. Do you mean how it looks or what the voltmeter/ammeter measure?

Here are some generalities:

Components in series have the same current through them.
Components in parallel have the same voltage across them.

When components are in series, the voltage across the combination of them is divided among them.
When components are in parallel, the current into the combination of them is divided among them.
