  1. Hmmm…, current can flow in either direction (flow of positive charges and flow of negative charges). But as electrons flow from – to + and assuming that by current you mean “conventional” current, I agree with Rob. So B) Not true.

  2. Not true: convention current theory (in North America, don’t know about Europe) current flow is positive to negative. Electron flow theory is electrons flowing negative to positive.

    NB. I always hated the ‘conventional’ theory in school. Always found it confusing.
