Answer :


Lines of force are moving outwards from q2, hence q2 is positively charged: +q2. Lines of force are going into q1, hence q1 is negatively charged : -q1.
From the diagram, 18 lines of electric field come out of q2 and 6 lines of electric field get into q1.
Ratio of
Hence,
If the lines are drawn in proportion to the charge then q1:q2= 1:3
