Solution

The correct option is B

always act on different bodies in opposite directions


The explanation for the correct option:

in case of option B:

  1. Newton’s third law of motion states when we exert a force on a body, we also experience a force that is equal in magnitude in the opposite direction of the force which is exerted by us.
  2. Thus, the action and reaction force work on two different bodies in opposite direction and has the same magnitude.

Hence, option B is correct.
