# Tangential component of Electric field

The above question i'm trying for so long but failed. This is from my class $12$ book(india).First of all i'm confused with tangential component of electric field, I mean why this? So far I've studied that electric field(Whether its own or someone's else) is always perpendicular to a charged body. So, there shouldn't be any tangential component. Could someone please explain me visually what's happening?

Strict Note: A class $12$ answer required. No complex statements please. Only for school childs.
