(C) In the direction opposite to the direction of motion. (D) None of these.

18.The effect of frictional force may be minimized by:

(A) Using a smooth object. (B) Using a smooth plane.

(C) Providing a lubricant at the surface of contact. (D) All of these.

19.A car slips on a wet road because

(A) Water increases the friction between the road and the tyres.

(B) It is not possible to apply brakes on a wet road.

(C) The friction between the brakes shoes and the wheels is reduced.
