Solution

The correct option is A

Increases


Explanation for the correct option

Option (A)

  1. We know a soap bubble is a conductor, according to the question it has a negative charge. By the spherical symmetry of the bubble, the total amount charged will be distributed uniformly over the bubble's surface.
  2. As we know same charges repulse each other. So due to the mutual repulsion between charges placed on the bubble surface, the size of the bubble will increase. That's why the radius of the bubble will Increase.
