Which of the following figures cannot possibly represent electrostatic field lines?

The correct option of this question is (b).

Explain : Positive charge tends to move normally away from the conductor.

i.e. Starts or ends only at 90o to the surface of the conductor. Thus, the lines of force are parallel and normal to the surface of conductor.

So, cannot represent electrostatic field lines.
