Answer : (a) $\;6\times10^{4}\;NC^{-1}$
Explanation : E due to A = $\;\large\frac{9\times10^9\times50\times10^{-9}\times10^{4}}{3\times5^2}$
Similarly E due to charge at B = $\;6\times10^{4}\;NC^{-1}$
Both are at $\;120^{0}\;$ to each other and of equal magnitude
resultant $\;|E|_{net}=6\times10^{4}\;NC^{-1}\;.$
