  2. The electroscope is charged by connecting one of the plates of the capacitor to the charged object to be observed while the other plated is grounded, by touching it with a finger

  4. The operation reduces the capacitance between the plates, but leaves all the charge that was stored in the lower plate at the electroscope, producing a great increase on its electric potential
