Answer : (a) two times
Explanation :
Initial potential difference between A & B
$V_{AB}=(\large\frac{kQ}{R}-\large\frac{k2Q}{2R})-(\large\frac{kQ}{2R}-\large\frac{k2Q}{2R})$
$V_{AB}=\large\frac{kQ}{2R}$
Final potential difference between A & B
$V^{|}_{AB}=(\large\frac{2kQ}{R}-\large\frac{2kQ}{2R})-(\large\frac{2kQ}{2R}-\large\frac{2kQ}{2R})$
$V^{|}_{AB}=\large\frac{kQ}{R}$
$V^{|}_{AB} = 2 V_{AB}\;.$
