    That's the way I was thinking @gisell79 as well! It's seems like a bit of an obscure question to be honest, as I'm sure that chemists and physicists have studied all four properties over the years for sub-atomic particles. But, thinking about what a private investigator does (i.e. being able to track down someone or something), the only appropriate answer appears to be position. Although it's well-defined today, this was something which scientists wrestled with for many years, particularly in the early 20th century when many different theories were presented as to how the positively and negatively charged species in an atom were arranged.
