A metallic sphere is placed in a uniform electric field as shown in the figure. which path is followed by electric field lines and why?

Path d is followed by electric field lines because electric field intensity inside the metallic sphere will be zero, therefore, no electric lines of force exist inside the sphere. Also electric field lines are always perpendicular to the surface of the conductor.
