You need to evaluate the magnitude and direction of electric field, using Coulomb's force, such that:
`E = F/q`
Since the problem provides the mass of foam ball, you need to replace the product `m*g` for F, such that:
`E = (m*g)/q => E = (0.150*10^(-3)*9.8)/(-2*10^(-9))`
`E = -0.735*10^6N/C`
Hence, E needs to point vertically downward because `q = -2*10^(-9)<0` and its magnitude is of `E = 0.735*10^6N/C.`
