Question

When exposed to electric field, particles are deviated towards the positive electrode or plate.
  1. α
  2. β
  3. γ


Solution

The correct option is B β
Beta (β) particles are a stream of negatively charged particles, or simply, electrons. Hence, when they are exposed to electric field, they tend to deviate or deflect towards the positive charged electrode or plate.
Alpha (α) particles are helium nuclei, and they deflect towards the negative electrode.
Gamma (γ) rays are electrically neutral electromagnetic rays, which shows no deviation in the presence of an electric field.
