Electric field inside a cavity of a uniformly charged sphere

According to my professor, that answer is wrong....

He went on about how "the closest the particles will get is ALMOST d, and your answer is wrong" I had no clue what he was talking about, but he said by answer was wrong....

He told me to try again.

The problem might be that particle 1's rest frame is a non-inertial (accelerating) frame....you may have to work in the lab frame (where both particles will move under eachother's influence) instead, however the exact fields of accelerating point charges are difficult to calculate...

So what can be done about this problem then? I was so sure that was the right answer, it seemed right.

I have no clue on how to come up with anything else.
