Explanation:

The electric charges are placed on a line .

1 a )      q1= +1 nC       q2= -1 nC         q3= -1 nC

here q₁ will be attracted by both q₂ and q₃ so net force on q₁ will be positive

2 a )      q1= -1 nC       q2= +1 nC         q3= + 1 nC

here q₁ will be attracted by both q₂ and q₃ so net force on q₁ will be positive

3 a )      q1= +1 nC       q2= +1 nC         q3= + 1 nC

here q₁ will be repelled  by both q₂ and q₃ so net force on q₁ will be negative.

4 a )      q1= +1 nC       q2= +1 nC         q3= – 1 nC

q2 will repel and q3 will attract so net force will be towards left but it will be weakened .

5 a )      q1= -1 nC       q2= -1 nC         q3= – 1 nC

Both q₁ and q₂ will repel so net force will be towards left and negative .

6 a )      q1= +1 nC       q2= -1 nC         q3= + 1 nC

q2 will attract and q3 will repel   so net force will be towards right  but it will be weakened . It will be positive .

Largest positive force to lowest positive force

2  a ) = 1 a ) >  6 a )

Largest negative  force to lowest positive force

5a )= 3 a ) > 4a )
