[B]. Disagree

No answer description available for this question.

Because it is supported by newtons 1st law.

"Every body continues in state of rest or uniform motion until and unless an external force is applied on it. ".

Sanjith.M said: (Oct 9, 2013)  
The force which changes or tends to change the state of rest or uniform motion. You can assume more examples.

Rahul Kumar said: (Dec 9, 2013)  
Here only motion has been described, when deformation is there that has not been mentioned or explained properly.

Bhavirishetty Anilkumar said: (Dec 24, 2013)  
Force changes the position a body so it may destroy the motion or it may set into the motion of the body. Suppose see if a car is going on the road by application of force we can stop it. By application of force we can set the block or body in motion.

Rehan said: (Feb 11, 2014)  
Force being an dynamic quantity when it applies to static body it comes in motion.

Shubham Sethi said: (Feb 23, 2014)  
According to Newton's first law. "Every body continues in state of rest or uniform motion until and unless an external force is applied on it. ".

Cheeranjeevi Palanivelu said: (Jun 4, 2014)  
According to definition of force in engineering mechanics, "Force is defined as a agent of pull or push, which results in the motion of the body or stops the motion of the body".

Akshay Vadak said: (Jan 2, 2015)  
A answer is correct because force = mass*acceleration. It is a agent of pull or push means motion depend on force.

Akanksha said: (Jul 6, 2015)  
The answer is correct because motion always equal to multiple of mass and acceleration so we can also said that it produce or tend to produce or destroy tends to destroy motion.

Pradeep said: (Aug 25, 2015)  
Force give more motion for a motion but it can destroys motion only only if it opposite.

What is archimedes principle?

Shivpujan Kumar said: (Nov 9, 2015)  
If force applied any body. Then some motion have create. It can destroy if external force in opposite direction.

Abhijit said: (Sep 29, 2016)  
Force is an external agent which produce motion or to stop motion or to decrease or increase the speed.

Vaibhav Ugale said: (Oct 17, 2016)  
Yes. It may be a produce or destroys motion.

Abhishek Joshi said: (Feb 17, 2017)  
Yes, It produce motion.

Parthiban.S said: (Apr 6, 2017)  
Yes, I agree, because Force can produce a motion when it applied on another product, also it can be destroyed the motion according to newton's third law f=-f.

Purushoth Raj said: (Jul 28, 2017)  
Yes. The force will produce the motion.

Vinood said: (Sep 16, 2017)  
How it's? I am not getting.

Jagadish Behera said: (Aug 6, 2018)  
Force produces motion or it changes the motion of the body. Force is an external agent which produced the motion. Without for the body remain constant.

Jmakis said: (Nov 20, 2019)  
That is true, but force can also reshape a body without change its state of motion.
