Answer : (c) will become -ve

Explanation :

If a +ve charge is placed at the point P then a -ve charge will induced onthe surface near to P

And the flux through the closed dotted surface is

$\phi=\large\frac{q_{inc}}{\in_{0}}$

$q_{inc}\;$ i.e. charge enclosed in the closed dotted surface is _ve and hence the flux through this surface will become -ve when a +ve charge is placed at P .
