Answers for 1,3,4,8,9 and 14 are D,A,D,C,D and A respectively

Can u explain 14th one

B is nearer to the source charge as compared to C. Since potential is inversely proportional to distance B will have more potential than C.

I thought they all are forming equilateral triangles i.e, are at equal distance with each other

They can or cannot be at equal distance from each other but their distances from the source are different.

Ohh. I got it now. Thanks
