Electric field inside a spherical metallic shell with charge on the surface is always zero. Therefore option [a] is


When the sells are connected with a thin metal wire then electric potentials will be equal, say V

? 1/ 4p ?0 QA/RA = 1 / 4 p ?0 QB­/RB = V

As RA > RB therefore QA > A­B option [b] is also correct.

As sA/sB QA/4pR2A/QB/4pR2B = R2B / R2A x 4p ?0 RAV / 4p ?0 RAV

? sA/sB = RB / RA

Option (c) is also correct

Also EA = sA/ sB = RB/RA < 1 ? EA < EB

Option (d) is also correct
