Which of the following statements about electric field lines is incorrect?

A :

They never cross each other

B :

They always form closed loops

C :

They point from positive toward negative charges

D :

They point away from positive as well as negative charges



Solution

Electric field lines represent the electric field present in a region. The electrostatic field between a test charge and a charged body is represented by the electric field lines that exist between them. Electric field lines never cross each other and point from positive toward negative charge. They do not form closed loops and always start from a positive charge and end on a negative charge.

The correct answer is C.

Please explain how option C is incorrect ! Because I think it would be D....
