    option b is correct means Q/2*epsilon... Ms, vaishali did right... you can make one more cone in opposite direction so that whole surface(first cone+new cone) is now closed...

    but if the charge it some other position of cone, you can't do this method...
  • Abhishek singh thankyou
    you can assume a second cone just below the given cone, such that it covers the given charge at centre. now flux through this closed arrangement is q/(epsilon). so the flux through...

    we solve these type of problems from gauss law and this law is valid only for symmetric bodies.
