# A boy sitting on top berth in the compartment of a train which just going to stop in a railway station dops an apple aiming at open hand of his brother sitting vertically below his hands at a distance of 2m. The apple will fall

a) precisely on the hand of the brother

b) slightly away from the hand of his brother in the direction of the motion of train.

c) slightly away from the hand of his brother in the direction opposite to direction of motion of train.

d) none of the above

As the train is retarding a pseudo force will act on the apple in the direction of motion of train and the ball will fall away from hand
So slightly away from the hand of his brother in the direction of the motion of train.
Hence b is the correct answer.
