Answer :

The stability of the colloid is due to these harges only. Due to the presence of these similar and equal charges, the particles of the colloidal sol repel one another and cannot combine together to form larger particles which keeps them dispered in the medium and the colloidal remains stable. Another reason for stability of the colloidal sol is the brownian movement of the sols.
