Question

# In the electric field of a point charge q, a certain point charge is carried from point A to B, C, D and E as shown in figure. The work done is

- least along the path AE
- least along the path AC
- zero along any of the paths
- least along AB

## The correct answer is: zero along any of the paths

### . For charge q placed at the centre of circle, the circular path is an equipotential surface and hence work done along all paths AB or AC or AD or AE is zero
