    Answer:

    b. electric potential energy.

    Explanation:

    The energy required to move a charge against the electric field is known as the electric potential energy. As in above case positively charged body is exerting an electric field on the positive charge. As the same charges repel so the charge tend to move away. In order to push it towards the body we need a work done. As it is hard to push the positive charged particle towards the positive electric field. So in the cases like these particle occupies the electric potential energy.
