A solid metallic sphere of radius a is surrounded by a conducting spherical shell of radius b $\;(b >a)\;$ . The solid sphere is given a charge Q . Potential at the surface of the solid sphere is $\;V_{a}\;$ and at the surface of spherical shell is $\;V_{b}\;$. If we put -4Q charge on the shell the potential differance between the sphere and shell becomes $\;\bigtriangleup V\;.$ Now we earthed the outer shell and the charge on the ouer shell is $\;q_{1}\;$.Now we removed the earthing connection from the shell and earthed the inner solid sphere. Charge on solid sphere becomes $\;q_{2}\;$. Answer the following question based on the passage.$\;q_{1}\;$ is
