Homework Help: Electrostatics - quick question

  1. Aug 5, 2016 #1
    I was doing some T/F exercises and there was this one that had me confused:

    The potential of a negatively charged conductor must be negative

    Because it's conductor, i figured all of the conductor would be negatively charged and so it would have a negative potential, but apparently this statement is false. What am i missing?
