Solution

## The correct option is C Unbalanced forceIt is clear from the given information that Arun is pushing harder, i.e., their pushes are unequal. Hence, the force between them will be unbalanced and the direction of force will be as shown in the given figure. The correct answer is C. Why alternative A is wrong: Frictional force opposes the motion of two moving bodies in contact. Why alternative B is wrong: There is no magnetism between Jaikishan and Arun. Hence, magnetic force is not a factor. Why alternative D is wrong: Gravitational force will act on them in a downward direction which will be balanced by a reaction force from the ground.
