Solution

The correct option is C Drawing V
The electric field lines comes out from a positive charge and goes into a negative charge .
   fig. (1) shows closed field lines , which is impossible.
   fig. (2) shows two positive charges , because field lines are coming out from both the charges and showing repulsion.
  fig.(3) shows a single positive charge.
  fig.(4) shows a uniform electric field from a positive plate to a negative plate.
  fig.(5) shows a positive and negative charge (two unlike charges) , because field lines are coming out from a charge ( positive) and going into another charge (negative).
