    Answer : The correct option is (A) Hydrogen region of the molecule.

    Explanation:

    As we know that the water molecule has two hydrogen atom and one oxygen atom. The hydrogen atom has partial positive charge and oxygen has partial negative charge.

    In the charged plate, the negative attracts positive and positive attracts negative. So, the hydrogen atom attracted to the negative plate and the oxygen atom attracted to the positive plate.

    When water molecule placed between oppositely charged metal plates which is positively charged, then the hydrogen atom which is positively charged attracted towards the negative plate.
