Why can one ignore quantisation of electric charge when dealing with macroscopic i.e., large scale charges?

Solution

 In macroscopic or large scale charges, the charges used are huge as compared to the magnitude of electric charge. Hence, quantization of electric charge is of no use on macroscopic scale. Therefore, it is ignored and it is considered that electric charge is continuous.
