**Hint:**Figure contains two shells with inner radius and outer radii and the graphs depict a relationship between electric field due to the shells and the distance from the centre. The electric field depends on the charge enclosed and the distance from the centre of a shell. As the whole charge Is concentrated on the surface, the electric field inside the shell is zero.

**Complete answer:**

Electric field is the work done to bring a unit charge from infinity to a point in the field. Its SI unit is $C{{m}^{2}}$. It is given by-

$E=\dfrac{q}{4\pi {{\varepsilon }_{0}}{{r}^{2}}}$ - (1)

Here, $E$ is the electric field

$q$ is the charge on the conductor

${{\varepsilon }_{0}}$ is the absolute permittivity

$r$ is the distance from the conductor

The electric field inside a conductor is therefore, for $r < a$, E=0

When we draw a Gaussian surface with radius a, the charge enclosed inside the Gaussian surface is zero.

Therefore, from eq (1),

$\begin{align}

& q=0 \\

& \therefore E=0 \\

\end{align}$

Therefore, for r < a, $E=0$.

For a < r < b, there is no charge present inside a conducting shell as all the charge is concentrated on the surface. Thus, the electric field inside a conducting shell is zero.

Therefore, for a < r < b, $E=0$.

For b

Therefore, for b < r < c, the electric field is inversely proportional to the square of distance from the centre

Again, for c < r < d, the electric field inside the shell is zero as there is no charge inside a conducting shell.

Therefore, for c < r < d, $E=0$

For d

Therefore, the electric field is zero for r < a, a < r < b, c < r < d and is inversely proportional to the radial component for b < r < c, d < r.

**Hence the correct graphical representation is (A).**

**Note:**

A Gaussian surface is an imaginary surface through which the electric lines of forces pass through normally. According to the Gauss law, the flux is equal to the charge enclosed in a Gaussian surface divided by absolute permittivity of free space. Question might arise for why is the electric field zero for r
