Expert Answer:

Dear student,

When you bring an uncharged body near a charged body, the electrons in the uncharged body move toward, or away from the charged body depending on the polarity of the charge on the charged body. This causes the side of the uncharged body closest to the charged body to have an opposite charge so they attract.
