Solution

The correct option is D Couple
When equal and opposite forces act on a body in the opposite directions on the opposite sides of the center of the object, it is known as a couple. It causes the object to rotate as the moment of forces add up for the two forces. Such an object does not move linearly as the net force is zero.
