    Answer: Option (a) is the correct answer.

    Explanation:

    When a charged object is brought near a neutral atom then the neutral atom will develop an opposite charge. This process of inducing charge is known as induction.

    Hence, when a negatively charged object is brought near a neutrally charged sphere then a positive charge will develop at the sphere. Thus, there will be attraction because opposite charges attract each other and like charges repel each other.

    Hence, we can conclude that if a negatively charged object is brought near a neutrally charged sphere, then the electrons will move toward the charged object.
