in millmans theorem how is it possible to treat resistances as emf when in reality they are of totally opposite nature emfs are active elements current goes from + to - in the outer circuit but for resistance which are passive elements current moves forom + to- throgh the resistance its wrong treat resistances as active element??????????????????????

Millman's theorem is about admittance and is really a generalised statement of parallel combinations of admittances or impedances, using the fact that admittances are the reciprocal of impedance.

Admittances add together linearly when in parallel combination, whereas you need to add reciprocals to combine impedances.

Can you provide a link to an example you have seen in which Millman's Theorem treats a resistance as an emf?
