# If a charge is shifted from a low potential region to high potential region , the electric potential energy

$(a)\;increases\qquad(b)\;decreases\qquad(c)\;may\;increase\;or\;decrease\qquad(d)\;remains\;the\;same$

Answer : (c) may increase or decrease
Explanation :
$\Delta\;P . E =q\;\Delta V$
$\Delta V is + ve \;$ , so depending upon sign of q potential energy may increase or decrease .
