Solution

## The correct option is D 78 J The force applied by Vijay be F1= 22 N The force applied by Gopal be F2= 10 N Since the forces are acting in opposite directions, the net force will be acting in the direction of the larger force. Net Force on the block= F1 - F2 F=22−10=12 N Displacement of the block in the direction of Vijay s=6.5 m (Given) Work done =F×s=12×6.5=78 J.
