Solution

## The correct option is A A, B, D Oil is used as a lubricant in order to reduce the roughness of surfaces in contact. Since option C negates this property, it is incorrect. From the rest of the statements, A and D are lubricants, which is used to make the surface slippery. And ball bearings reduce friction by rolling as rolling friction has a very less coefficinet of friction than sliding friction. So, as stated in the statements, they reduce friction. So, correct combination : A,B,D.
