The o/p of rectifier is consists of some ac components,regulator is used to convert into dc&it avoids the sudden changes in the input at o/p to protect devices.

You are wrong. Rectifiers are used to convert AC to DC (removes thes +ve or -ve part of a given AC waveform). It will not smoothen the output waveform.

Inductors and/or Capacitors are used for filtering purpose.

It may be rectifier as it converts ac to dc which is smooth.
