Solution

The correct option is A greater than
The difference between the number of protons and number of electrons decides the net charge on a body. Protons are positively charged while electrons are negatively charged. If a body has more electrons than protons, it is negatively charged and if it has more protons than electrons, it is positively charged. For a neutral body, the number of electrons is equal to that of protons.
