The correct answer is: (d) D

Work Step by Step

An electric field points from locations of higher potential to locations of lower potential. Since the electric field points toward the right in the diagram, the points which are farther to the right will be at locations of lower potential. Since point D is farthest to the right, point D is at the lowest potential. The correct answer is: (d) D
