Solution

The correct option is B

True


This can be understood with the help of an example:

When you go swimming in a swimming pool, you dive off from a diving board. When you are about to jump, you push the springboard with your legs and in return, the board forces you into the air. Here, you are applying action force on the springboard and the board in return applying reaction force on you.

Hence, we can say that action and reaction forces act on two different bodies.
