Question

When a tree is shaken, its fruits and leaves fall down . Why ?

Solution

When a tree (having flexible stems) is shaken vigorously, its fruits and leaves fall down. This is due to the fact that when the tree is shaken, it moves to-and-fro slightly but its fruits and leaves tend to remain at rest (or stationary) due to their inertia. Thus, they get detached from the tree and fall down.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
