    A. The inertia of brick A is more than the Inertia of brick B B.The inertia of brick B is more than the Inertia of brick A C.The inertia of both bricks are the same D.The inertia of both bricks are Zero

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but inertia is the ability of a object to resist acceleration right? Long time sense I have worked with Newtonian mechanics, but I think we can solve the problem this way: \[F=ma \leftarrow \rightarrow a=\frac{ F }{ m }\] \[\Delta a=\frac{ F }{ \Delta m }\] F : The force an object is exposed to. m : Mass a: Acceleration We make the conclusion from Newton's 2. law of motion, that the greater the mass of an object is, the less will a object accelerate, when exposed from a force?

    yeah, your argument makes sense. With that logic the answer would be A, as A is heavier and thus resists acceleration more than B
