Solution

The correct option is C

The Earth takes away excess electrons from the body to neutralise the body


The Earth is an ocean of charges. When a charged body is brought in contact with the Earth, the Earth neutralizes the body. When a body is negatively charged, the Earth neutralizes the body by taking the excess electrons from the body.
