A yo-yo placed on a rough horizontal surface and a constant force F, less than its weight , pulls it vertically . Due to this

a) friction force towards left, so it will move towards left.

b) friction force towards right, so it will move towards right.

c) it will move towards left, so friction acts towards left.

d) it will move towards right, so friction acts towards right.

F produces an anticlockwise torque.
Hence bottom most point moves ,tends to slip towards right.
Therefore friction acts towards Left and the Yo- Yo moves towards left.
