Solution

The correct option is B False
The Newton's first law of motion states that there will be no change in state of motion of body unless a net external force is applied. The statement is false, because frictional force might not be the only force acting on the body. So the external force should counter all the forces including frictional force to keep the body moving in a uniform motion.
