Hey, so I was practising some past papers in chemistry and I was surprised to see this question because I thought this would be a physics question. I would really appreciate an explanation and the options would be listed below as a comment. Take note that more than one option can be correct. Thanks

Beams of charged particles are deflected by an electric field. In identical conditions the angle of deflection of a particle is proportional to its charge / mass ratio.
In an experiment, protons are deflected by an angle of +15°. In another experiment under identical conditions, particle Y is deflected by an angle of –5°.
What could be the composition of particle Y?

Particle Y have more electron than proton cause it reflect in the opposite side to protons.
