B

Explanation:

To say that electric charge is conserved means that no case has ever been found where :_________

the total quantity of charge on an object has increased

According to conservation of energy, energy is neither created nor destroyed. But can only be converted into another form.

But in the case of charges, the number of charges can not be increased nor decreased it’s only the rate of flow that can change due to the pressure supplied.

So therefore, the correct answer is B which say that:

To say that electric charge is conserved means that no case has ever been found where the total quantity of charge on an object has increased
