When as electrolysis is in progress, if the cathode plate is removed

 the movement of ions stopped
 the ions move at random
all ions move towards anode
only anions move towards the anode

detailed solution

Correct option is B

  • When the cathode is removed, the circuit is broken, and no electron movement occurs. 
  • Ions therefore travel randomly rather than under the influence of electricity.
  • If the cathode is removed, the circuit is interrupted, and there is no directed flow of electrons or ions.
  • As a result, ions migrate at random.
