C) equal to zero

Explanation:

Electric potential is calculated by multiplying constant and charge, then dividing it by distance. The location that we want to measure is equidistant from two particles, mean that the distance from both particles is the same(r2=r1). The charges of the particle have equal strength of magnitude but the opposite sign(q2=-q1). The resultant will be:V = kq/r

ΔV= V1 + V2= kq1/r1 + kq2/r2

ΔV= V1 + V2= kq1/r1 + k(-q1)/(r)1

ΔV= kq1/r1 – kq1/r1

ΔV=0

The electric potential equal to zero
