Question

The diagram shows three identical metal plates that are set parallel to each other. The left plate is farther from the center plate than the right plate is from the center plate. A source of constant EMF is connected to the system such that the center plate is connected to the positive terminal and the left and right plates are connected to the negative terminal.
Which of the following diagrams correctly depicts the electric field lines (shown as arrows) in the region between the plates?

Correct option is
A

Since same battery has been joined between the two capacitors, the potential difference between both set of plates is same.
However the distance between A and B is more, hence the electric field between A and B is less.
