Consider the situation of the figure. The work done in taking a point charge from $$\mathrm{P}$$ to $$\mathrm{A}$$ is $$W_{\mathrm{A}}$$ , from $$\mathrm{P}$$ to $$\mathrm{B}$$ is $$W_{\mathrm{B}}$$ and from $$\mathrm{P}$$ to $$\mathrm{C}$$ is $$W_{\mathrm{C}}$$. Then:

1. $$W_{\mathrm{A}}<W_{\mathrm{B}}<W_{\mathrm{C}}$$
2. $$W_{\mathrm{A}}>W_{\mathrm{B}}>W_{\mathrm{C}}$$
3. $$W_{\mathrm{A}}=W_{\mathrm{B}}=W_{\mathrm{C}}$$
4. none of these
