Three concentric spherical metallic shells A , B and C of radii a , b and c $\;(a < b < c)\;$ have charge densities $\;\sigma , - \sigma \; and \; \sigma\;$ respectively . If the shells A and C are at the same potential then the relation between a , b and c is

Answer : (c) a+b=c
Explanation :
$V_{A}=\large\frac{k\;\sigma\;4\;\pi\;a^2}{a} =\large\frac{k\;(-\sigma)\;4\;\pi\;b^2}{b}+\large\frac{k\;\sigma\;4\;\pi\;c^2}{c}$
$=k\; \sigma 4\;\pi\;(a-b+c)$
$V_{C}=\large\frac{k\;\sigma\;4\;\pi\;a^2}{c} -\large\frac{k\;\sigma\;4\;\pi\;b^2}{b}+\large\frac{k\;\sigma\;4\;\pi\;c^2}{c}$
A and C are at same potential
