Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### A collection of charge located at a very large distance can b considered as the point charge. Now the equipotential surface for a point charge will have the same distance from the point in all the directions.Therefore, the euipotential points for a point charge will have a spherical surface.So, Option A is correct.
