Solution

## The correct option is C 60 NFirst of all we need to check what is the friction available for all the three blocks. For Block (A): N1=30g=300 N f3 max=μN1=(0.3)(300)=90 N For Block (B): N=40g=400 N f2 max=μN=0.2×400=80 N Similarly, for block (C): N=60g=600 N f1 max=μN=(0.1)×600=60 N So, the minimum driving force required to start slipping at any point of the system is 60 N.
