Answer :

Electric charge of a body is quantised.


This statement means that charge on a body can take only integral values i.e. (1, 2, 3, 4, …. N) number of electrons can be transferred from one body to another. The charges cannot be transferred in fractions. It can only be an integral multiple of the charge of one electron.


Therefore, as a result, a body will possess a charge that is an integral multiple of the electric charge of an electron.
