Two bodies A and B of masses 50 kg and 100 kg are kept at a distance of 2 m on the surface of the earth. The gravitational force of attraction between them is F. A and B are then taken to the moon and are kept at the same distance of 2 m. The acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the moon `=(g)/(6)`, where g is the acceleration due to gravity on the earth. What will be the gravitational force of attraction between A and B on the surface of the moon ?
A. 6 F
B. `(F)/(6)`
C. F
D. `sqrt(F)`

Correct Answer - C
The gravitational force of attraction between A and B will remain the same (i.e.F) on the moon because their masses are not changed.
