Solution

The correct option is A Class I
Depending on the relative positions of the effort, load and fulcrum, levers are classified into 3 types:
  • Class I: The fulcrum is situated between the load and the effort.
  • Class II: The load is situated between the fulcrum and the effort.
  • Class III: The effort is situated between the fulcrum and the load.
In a pair of scissors, the fulcrum is present in between the load (the cutting blades) and the effort (the handles) which make them a class I lever.
