If the metal clip used in the electroscope is replaced by an ebonite rod and a charged body is brought in contact with it, will there be any effect on the aluminium strips? Explain.

Ebonite is an insulator. 

When a charged body is brought in contact with the ebonite rod, charge transfer will not occur as ebonite is an insulator.

So, the aluminum strips will not show any repulsion.
