    • D.

      Two or more pulleys working together.

    Correct Answer
    A. A lever in which fulcrum is between the load and effort
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because it accurately describes a class 1 lever. In a class 1 lever, the fulcrum is located between the load and the effort. This means that the lever pivots around the fulcrum, and the effort is applied on one side of the fulcrum to overcome the load on the other side. This type of lever is commonly seen in tools such as seesaws and crowbars.

      The force applied to move a load using a "Simple Machine"

    Correct Answer
    D. The force applied to move a load using a "Simple Machine"
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because it accurately describes the concept of a simple machine. A simple machine is a mechanical device that can change the direction or magnitude of a force to make work easier. It typically consists of a few basic parts, such as a lever, inclined plane, pulley, wheel and axle, wedge, or screw. By applying a force, known as effort, to a simple machine, it can be used to move a load or overcome resistance with less effort than would be required without the machine. Therefore, the force applied to move a load using a "Simple Machine" is an accurate explanation.

    Correct Answer
    D. A scale used to compare masses placed at equal distances from fulcrum.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a scale used to compare masses placed at equal distances from the fulcrum. This is because an equal arm balance is a type of weighing scale that has two pans or trays suspended from a central fulcrum. The masses to be compared are placed on each side of the fulcrum, and the scale balances when the masses are equal. This type of balance is commonly used in laboratories and other settings where precise measurements of weight are required.

    A lever in which the effort is between the fulcrum and load.

    Correct Answer
    class 3 lever
    Explanation
    A class 3 lever is a type of lever where the effort is applied between the fulcrum and the load. In this lever, the load is closer to the fulcrum than the effort. This means that the effort arm is longer than the load arm, resulting in a mechanical advantage less than 1. Class 3 levers are commonly found in everyday objects like brooms and tweezers, where a small effort can be used to move a larger load over a shorter distance.
