Question

Choose the correct ones from the following statements:
A) The capacitance of a conductor is affected due to the presence of an uncharged isolated conductor.
B) A conductor can hold more charge at the same potential if it is surrounded by dielectric medium.

A

Both A and B are correct.

B

Both A and B are wrong.

C

A is correct and B is wrong.

D

A is wrong and B is correct.

Correct option is
A

Both A and B are correct.

Since the charged conductor induces opposite charge on the near face of the isolated conductor, which moves the charges of the conductor towards it making it draw more charge from the source where it is connected. Hence the capacity of a conductor is affected due to the presence of an uncharged isolated conductor.

Since the presence of a dielectric medium induces additional charges into the conductor, the 
conductor can hold more charge at the same potential.
