Homework Help: Potential Gradient Question

  1. Sep 9, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think that the answer is C because it goes in the direction opposite the electric field and crosses through the most equipotential surfaces. Any confirmation or denial would be great.
    Thank you.
