Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation

LAWS OF SOLID FRICTION: Friction opposes the relative motion of two surfaces in contact. It is independent of the area of the surface of contact. It depends on the nature of the surface. It is proportional to normal reaction (R). It is independent of the relative velocity between the surfaces.
