As we learned

If surface is uniform -

Charge distributes uniformly.

- wherein

 

 Because in case of metallic sphere either solid or hollow, the charge will reside on the surface of the sphere. Since both spheres have same surface area, so they can hold equal maximum charge.

Hollow sphere can be given more charge

Option 3)

They can be charged equally (maximum)

Option 4)
