Solution

The correct option is A

Class I lever


Depending upon the relative positions of the effort, load and fulcrum, levers are classified into 3 types.

(1) Class I lever

(2) Class II lever

(3) Class III lever

In both scissors and pliers, the fulcrum is located in between load and effort. Hence, they belong to class I lever.
