Solution

The correct option is D 1.6×1010 N (towards west)
Given, the object having deficient of 106 electrons, means the object is a positively charged one.

Net charge of the object is, q=ne

q=106×1.6×1019 C

Force experienced by the object is,

F=qE=103×106×1.6×1019

F=1.6×1010 N (towards west)

As we know, positively charged body experience electrostatic force along the direction of electric field.
