Gauss’s law can be used to show that the electric field at a given di

Outside a spherically symmetric charge distribution of net charge Q, Gauss’s law can be used to show that the electric field at a given distance

a) must be greater than zero
b) must be zero
c) acts like it originated in a point charge Q at the center of distribution
d) must be directed inward
e) must be directed outward


I think is C.
