The answer is obviously B. Add more protons to a positively charged body until the number of protons matches the number of electrons.Charge neutralization in a body refers to a state in which the net charge of the particles have been cancelled out by the absorption of an equal number of opposite charges. The sum of this definition, which basically means that, if an object is positively charged, negatively charged ions are attracted by the positive charge of the object and the positive are repelled. Over time, the result will be the neutralization of the charge. It makes No sense to choose B. due to the addition of more protons to a positively charged body will only make it more positively charged. The protons should exceed the number of electrons.
