    Electrons are the ones that are negatively charged and they are located outside the nucleus. Protons are Positively charged and are located inside the nucleus. Neutrons are neutral ones inside the nucleus. SO what would be the answer here ?

    refer to the diagram above, the number of electrons can change at any given time, giving us a net negative charge, if an electron is gained an anion, or a positive charge a cation, if an electron is lost. remember, because the number of protons is located in the nucleus, it's value typically does not change.
