Which body is at a higher potential, a positively charged body or a negatively charged body? Why  ? From which body will the current flow to which body?

Dear Student

By convention, positively charged body is considered to have higher potential and negatively charged body is considered to have lower potential. 

On electron tranfer basis, negatively charged body is at higher potential because it has excess electron.

When positively charged body and negatively charged body are connected with the help of a conductor, electric charge flows from positively charged body to negatively charged body.This is conventional current.

In actual current which is due to the movement of electron,s flows from negatively charged body to positively charged body.
