2 CHARGED SPHERES OF EQUAL RADIUS (ONE IS HOLLOW AND OTHER ONE IS SOLID) ARE CHARGED TO SAME POTENTIAL.... WILL THEY HAVE EQUAL CHARGES? WILL THE HOLLOW SPHERE HAVE MORE CHARGE? WILL THE SOLID SPHERE HAVE MORE CHARGE? OR DOES IT DEPEND IN ANY OTHER CONDITION?

the electric charge throughout the interior of a solid conductor is exactly zero, as can be shown by using Gauss' law. therefore, the entire charge contained by the solid conductor is present on its surface. therefore, the two spheres have equal charges.
