Question

The electric field in a region surrounding the origin and along the x-axis is uniform. A small circle is drawn with the center at the origin cutting the axes at points A, B, C, and D having coordinates (a, 0), (0, a), (-a, 0), and (0, -a), respectively, as shown in Fig. Then the potential is minimum at :
