detailed solution

Correct option is C

Given Data: E is the electric field due to an infinite sheet of charge having surface charge density $\sigma$

Concept Used: Electric Field Intensity.

Detailed Solution:

Formula of electric field due to infinite sheet of charge:

$\mathrm{E}=\frac{\sigma }{{\epsilon }_{0}}$

So, we know, Electric field due to conducting sheet of same density of charge:

${E}^{\text{'}}=\frac{\sigma }{2{\epsilon }_{0}}=\frac{E}{2}$
