Correct option is
B

Electric Potential is continuous.

C

Electric Field is discontinuous.

We know that electric field inside the conductor is zero, i.e,

Field outside the conductor

Potential inside the conductor is constant, i.e,

Potential outside the conductor

Therefore, the electric field is discontinuous and potential is continuous across the surface of the charged conductor.
