In this paper we give the sufficient condition for a graph $AG(R)$ to be complete. We characterize rings for which $AG(R)$ is a regular graph, we show that $gamma (AG(R))in {1,2}$ and we also characterize the rings for which $AG(R)$ has a cut vertex. Finally we find the clique number of a finite reduced ring and characterize the rings for which $AG(R)$ is a planar graph.http://toc.ui.ac.ir/article_20360_56c78d48b767dab5eff9143a4cf11336.pdf
