Solution

The correct option is C 4d4+π right to the centra of discTaking the center of disc as the origin and the line joining its center with the center of the square as the − x axis we will get the coordinates of the center of mass of the disc as (0,0)and that of the square plate as (−(d2+d2),0) or (−d,0)mass of the disc as md=aπd24 where a is mass density per unit area.similarly mass of the square plate will be ms=a×d2so the center of mass will be at x=md×0+ms×(−d)md+ms=−4dπ+4 negative so towards left.
