A.
B is positively charged and C is negatively charged.
B.
B is negatively charged and C is positively charged.
C.
Both B and C are positively charged.
D.
Both B and C are negatively charged.
E.
B has no charge and C is positively charged.

  1. f A is positively charged, B repels A, and C is attracted by A, what can you say about the charge on B and C?
    A is +. B repels A so B must be +. C attracts A so C must be -.
    Check my thinking.
