Answer:

Simply by connecting two ends to the terminals of a battery.

Explanation:

By connecting two ends of a metallic substance to a battery, we introduce an electric field within the metallic body.

In such a case, we can expect an electric current due to the drift of electrons opposite to the field due to electrostatic force they experience due to the field.
