Correct options are A) , B) , C) and D)
The electric field is E=−dxdV If V=0, we can not say E must be zero, we say only E may be zero. If V=0, E must be zero when V is max i.e, dxdV=0 For example, inside the conductor E=0, but V=0 If E=0 , V may be zero when two equal and opposite charges separated by a distance and at the midpoint in between the charges field is non-zero but potential is zero.
