Charge given out in one second is $1.6×10^{–19} × 10^9 C = 1.6 × 10^{–10 } C.$

The time required to accumulate a charge of $1 C =\large\frac{1}{1.6 \times 10^{-10}}$

$\qquad=6.25 \times 10^9\;s $

$\qquad=\large\frac{6.25 \times 10^9 }{365 \times 24 \times 6400}$years

To collect a charge of one coulomb, from a body from which $10^9$ electrons move out every second, we will need approximately 200 years.

One coulomb is, therefore, a very large unit for many practical purposes.

Hence A is the correct answer.
