Solution

## The correct option is A the football player did not hit the ball hard According to Newton's third law, when a body A exerts a force on another body B, B also exerts an equal and opposite force on A. Hence, while kicking a ball, the footballer's leg will experience the same magnitude of force it exerted on the ball and in opposite direction.
