Answer :

A ballpoint pen refill can be charged by rubbing it against the wool cloth. It becomes negatively charged. When we bring it close to bits of paper, the paper gets attracted to it. Paper is electrically neutral. The negative charge on the pen induces a positive charge on the paper bits which are close to it that causes the paper to fly and stick to the pen.
