Solution

## The correct option is C 2:1When the two conducting spheres are connected by a conducting wire, charge will flow from one sphere (having higher potential) to another sphere (having lower potential) till both the spheres acquire the same potential. So in equilibrium, potential will be same for the two spheres. As E=Vr,∴ E1E2=r2r1=21
