Solution

## The correct option is B her weight is concentrated into a small areaWe know , pressure , P=F/A where F= force (in this case , weight of woman) and A= area on which force is applied , as the woman is having heels , so the area is very small and due to this, pressure on the foot of partner increases (because P∝1/A) verymuch and he feels pain.
