A positively charged conductor carrying a charge +Q placed near an uncharged and earthed conductor results in the phenomenon called the electrostatic induction. An electric charge is induced in the uncharged conductor due to this phenomenon. The electric charge induced on the uncharged conductor is

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;-2Q\\ (B)\;-Q\\ (C)\; 0 \\(D)\; +Q \end{array}$

Can you answer this question?
