Solution

## The correct options are A It is the point at which the mass of a body is assumed to be concentrated. C The centre of gravity of an object need not always coincide with its geometric centre. D A body can be balanced at its geometrical centre if it coincides with the centre of gravity It is the point at which the mass of a body is assumed to be concentrated. It is unique for every body. For objects having uniform density, centre of gravity coincides with the geometric centre. A body can be balanced at its geometrical centre if it coincides with the centre of gravity
