Answer: option (4) of the same magnitude and opposite sign.Justification:1) the Electrons are negative particles that are found around the nucleus of the atom (in regions called orbitals).2) the Protons are positive particles that are inside the nuclus of atom.3) The nucleus of the atom has the same number of protons as electrons in the orbitals of the atom.4) atoms are neutral (neither positive nor negative) because there are the same number of electrons and protons charging are of the same magnitude but of different sign: (+) + (-) = 0: positive + negative = neutral.
