Sphere $A$ and Sphere $B$ are metal spheres of identical size and shape. They are set on insulating stands and each has a different initial charge. Spheres $A$ and $B$ come into contact. A spark between the spheres indicates that a charge is transferred. After contact, each sphere has a charge of negative $5\ \mu\text{C}$.

If the charge on Sphere $A$ was positive $22\ \mu\text{C}$ before contact, which of the following indicates the charge on Sphere $B$ before contact?

A

$+17\ \mu\text{C}$

B

$+11\ \mu\text{C}$

C

$-27\ \mu\text{C}$

D

$-32\ \mu\text{C}$
