Solution

## The correct options are A It is the point through which the weight of the body can be assumed to act. C The centre of gravity of an object need not always coincide with its geometric centre. D A body can be balanced at a single point if it coincides with the centre of gravity. The centre of gravity is the point through which the weight of the body can be assumed to act. For regular objects, the centre of gravity lies at their geometrical centre. A body can only have one centre of gravity. A body can be balanced at a single point if it coincides with the centre of gravity.
