When we rub glass rod with fur, the glass rod will acquire
(A) Positive charge
(B) Negative charge
(C) Either positive or negative charge
(D) Neither positive nor negative charge

The correct answer will be the option-(A) Positive charge.

When we rub a glass rod with fur, the glass rod will acquire a positive charge and fur will acquire a negative charge, according to triboelectric series.

To find out which substance gains electrons and become negatively charged and which loses to become positively charged, there is a list known as the triboelectric series. It is a list that ranks materials according to their tendency to gain or lose electrons. The process of electron transfer as a result of two objects coming into contact with one another and then separating is called triboelectric charging.
