(a)

To determine
The electric field at point A.

Explanation

The electric field lines of a positive charge points outwards. The field of a positive charge points outwards. Both the positive charges will contribute to the net field at point A...

(b)

To determine
The charge at point A.

(c)

To determine
The force at point A.
