The correct answer to this question is E, Protons, Electrons Neutron. Each of these parts has its own charge. Protons are positively charged. Neutrons have no charge. Electrons are negatively charged.

Protons are with neutrons, while electrons orbit the nucleus. Atoms make up elements, and they are the smallest particles. Every element has a different number of protons. Overall, there are over 100 different types of atoms. Out of those 100, 92 of them are natural.

The rest are formed in labs. Forces are important parts of atoms. This is because forces are what hold protons, electrons, and neutrons to the atom.

The correct answer to this question is C, Short circuit. These circuits are in electrical circuits, and they are a problem. It occurs when two or more wires that are not supposed to contact each other, but somehow they end up touching.

The result can be very dangerous, and the current can become very high as it flows through the circuit. High current can be destructive as it can destroy components of the circuit.

Along with that, it can melt the insulation, which could lead to a fire. Depending on how much voltage there is, it can also lead to an explosion known as the arc flash.
