Solution

The correct option is D more weight is concentrated
Centre of gravity of an object is a specific point such that the body behaves as if the entire gravitational force is acting only at that point.
Since weight means the gravitational force acting, D is the correct option.
C is not the correct option because, for very large bodies like huge mountains, it is not at the point where more mass is concentrated
