# Charge produced at end of an insulator rod using electric induction

When a charged body is brought near one end of a rod, opposite charge is produced at the opposite end of the rod. This is written in my book.

Why is charge produced at only the opposite end?

No, there is something wrong with your statement/understanding. Opposite charges attract each other.
