The net electric flux through a closed surface is
1. zero if only positive charges are enclosed by the surface.
2. zero if only negative charges are enclosed by the surface.
3. infinite only if the net charge enclosed by the surface if zero.
4. zero if the net charge enclosed by the surface is zero.
5. infinite only if there are no charges enclosed by the surface.
