Options a) Both A & B are true b) A is true B is false. c) A is false but B is true. d) Both A & B are false. Which and why is the right answer?

    If the contact surface is horizontal, and the object on it is at rest, without any sideways force pushing on it, then frictional force will be zero.

    The only contact force will be the normal force opposing weight of the object.
