What is true about an electric field around a positive charge?

The field will point away from the charge.


Electrical fields are drawn such that the field lines point in the direction that a positive particle will “feel” a positive force (as are gravitational fields) so in this case the field lines point away from the charge.

Oh, you can also state that the field is proportional to the charge in the centre and inversely proportional to the distance.
