Solution

The correct option is A

Class I levers


Depending upon the relative positions of the effort, load and fulcrum, levers are classified into 3 types.

(1) Class I levers

(2) Class II levers

(3) Class III levers

In both a pair of scissors and a pair of pliers, fulcrum is between load and effort.

Hence,they belong to Class I levers
