Solution

## The correct option is B 136 timesThe gravitational force, F between two bodies, m1 and m2 seperated by distance d is given by, F=G m1m2d2, where G is the universal gravitational constant. ⟹F∝1d2 So, if the distance between the two bodies becomes 6 times the usual, the force of gravity between them would be 162 = 136 times the usual.
