    None of the above.

    Your question is like "what causes water?"  With your answer 4 being "Moving water molecules."

    Moving electrons are the current of electricity, but the electrons are the electricity.  They're the things with the charge we attribute to electricity.

    When you comb your hair in a dry cold environment, you can get your hair to stand up when the comb is passed close by.  That's due to static electricity, electrons that are just sitting there on your comb...not moving.  Electrons, moving or not, are electricity.

    None of the above.  Electrical *current* is the flow of electrons, but a simple excess of electrons at a point (no net motion required) creates a static electric charge.

    5. Do your own homework.

    6. How does somebody not already know the answer to this question?

    EDIT:  A comment from the erudite kmuhammad, the poster of this question:"**** you raggedy *** hoe.Take a wild guess,maybe I don't fell like it that don't take a ******* rocket scientist to figure that **** out.*****."

    Yes, you obviously don't "fell" like it.  I figured that out when I saw your copy & paste homework question.  Anyway, I'll not be talked to like that in this august forum.  Consider yourself reported.

    Also, please never vote or reproduce.  Thanks.
