# According to this Passage, Which One of the Following Values Can Be Assigned to the Statement Inequal Weights at Inequal Distances Are in Disequilibrium? - Logical Reasoning

MCQ

"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

#### Solution

true

Explanation:

Since the passage explicitly states that equal weights at inequal distances are in disequilibrium, then the statement ‘inequal weights at inequal distances’ can be considered to be true.
