Solution

## The correct options are A on A, supports its motion. B on B, opposes its motion relative to A. C on B, opposes its motion. As friction opposes relative motion between A and B, it acts as shown in figure. From the figure it is clear that friction on A supports its motion and on B opposes its motion. Friction always opposes relative motion.
