The diagram below shows five objects in space. Object 1 is at equal distance from Object 2, Object 3, Object 4, and Object 5 The mass of Object 2 is double the mass of Object 5. The mass of Object 4 is half of the mass of Object 5 and the mass of Object 3 is half of the mass of Object 4. Which of these statements is correct about Object 2, Object 3, Object 4, and Object 5?

    Object 3 and Object 5 exert the same gravitational force on Object 1. Object 2 and Object 4 exert the same gravitational force on Object 1. The gravitational force between Object 1 and Object 2 is greater than the gravitational force between Object 1 and Object 4. The gravitational force between Object 1 and Object 3 is greater than the gravitational force between Object 1 and Object 5.

    So gravitational force depends on mass objects 3 and 5 do not exert the same force as they are not the same mass, like wise with objects 2 and 4 are not the same mass so they would not exert the same force on object 1. Looking at the last option object 5 is bigger or has more mass than object 3 so the force between 5 and 1 is greater than 3 and 1. So the correct one is option 3 because object 2 has the most amount of mass so therefore it would exert a greater force on object 1 than 4 would. We could make these assumptions because each of the objects are the same distance from object 1

    I don't want to give or lead you to the wrong answer just because I wasn't double checking
