Read the following information and answer the question that follows.

"Perhaps the earliest work of Archimedes that we have is that on 'Plane Equilibrium'. In this, some fundamental principles of mechanics are set forth as rigorous geometric propositions. The work opens with famous postulate 'Equal weights at equal distances are in equilibrium; equal weights at unequal distances are not in equilibrium, but incline toward the weight at the greater distance".

According to this passage, which one of the following values can be assigned to the statement inequal weights at inequal distances are in disequilibrium?


  • true

  • false

  • uncertain

  • unverifiable
