Correct Answer - Option 1 : do not deformed under an external force.


  • Rigid body: A system of particles that has a finite size and does not get deformed when an external force is applied.
    • In a rigid body, the distance between any two particles of an ideal rigid body does not change even when it is under the influence of external forces.


  • Option 1 and 2: Rigid body is a body that does not deform under the influence of external force.
    • So the option 1 is a correct statement and option 2 is not a correct statement.
  • Option 3: The distance between two points in a rigid body does not change.
    • So this is an incorrect statement.
  • Hence the correct answer is option 1.
