can we create an electric field in which all the lines of forces are parallel but their density increases continuously in a direction perpendicular to the lines of forces?why/why not?

Expert Answer:

Yes, that can happen as the electric field intensity would decreases by increasing the distance from the source, consider a case of an electric dipole where parallel field lines are produced but the spacing between them increases or density decreases with distance. In this case the density has decreased in a direction perpendicular to the direction of field lines.
