    a, c, d) is it gravity, or electricity? The SOURCE for everything electrical is electric charge. ... too bad they ignored the electric permitivity or k (absolutely necessary!)

    I think it is charge, that is why B needs further consideration.

    and Force comes from closeness (proximity), not distance.

    \(\vec F = k \frac{Q_1 \ Q_2}{r^2} \hat r\) \(V = -\frac{k \ Q}{r}\)

    @IrishBoay123 's has got it, charge and distance are the variables that determine electrostatic force and electric potential. See my favorite lecture on the subject - Lec 04: Electrostatic Potential and Electric Energy | 8.02 Electricity and Magnetism (Walter Lewin) https://youtu.be/5aQdZ26uR7E
