The fact can be easily explained by OHMs law that whenever a voltage is applied across a conductor thn current will flow. If their is no resistance then no current.

I figured this out by the fact that if you have INFINITE internal resistance (ie an OPEN circuit) then you will not have a very practical current source!

If there is no resistance, available current source is present, but there is no voltage drop, so resistance must be present there.

Being practical current source it has finite internal resistance otherwise it is infinite in case of ideal.

If it is a practical ct source then it has finite resistance if it ideal ct source then resistance is zero.

Ideally resistance is zero but practically is not possible.

Voltage source has resistance in series whereas current source has resistance in parallel ie., resistance is now acting as conductance so it has some value of G. But for ideal G= infinite.

This is wrong answer because when you talking about practical thing than there is no meaning of infinite. If we thinking on basis of rule than infinite resistance work as open circuit it means infinite voltage drop which is not possible in practical case.

In Ideally case the resistance is zero but practically not possible.

For a practical current source it has finite resistance, but when we talk about ideal current source than it has infinite resistance, the person who is saying that internal resistance is zero it is valid for ideal voltage source.

Practical means which exist in real life so some resistance.

The Practical current source consists that "current source in parallel with small internal resistance". But in the ideal current source, there is no internal resistance means that parallel circuit is open.

Rajesh said: (Jul 4, 2017)  
Actually, there is no practical current sources.

Actually, ideal current source has infinite internal resistance but a practical current source has high resistance.
