Solution

## The correct option is A adding 4 electronsA neutral body contains an equal number of positive(protons) and negative(electron) charges. As number of proton is greater than electron, so we need extra electrons to neutralize it. Let the number of electrons required = x. For neutral body, Electrons - Protons = 0 (9 + x) - 13 = 0 x = 0 Therefore, the number of electrons required to neutralize the body is 4.
