Solution

The correct option is B Left of A on the line
The electric field is zero at a point where Electric field due to points A and B are opposite in direction and equal in magnitude, which is only possible on the left side of A on the line. On the right of B on the line, fields due to A and B can not be equal and between A and B on the line, fields are in same direction. Therefore, Option 'B' is correct.
