Question
Chapter 1, Problem 1FC
To determine

## The correct option.

The correct option is (d) 4.

### Explanation of Solution

In the head-tail arrangement of the vector diagram, the resultant vector (R) is drawn from the tail of the first vector (A) to the head of the second vector (B) , for the convenience of the calculation of the magnitude of the resultant using the Pythagoras theorem or the expression for finding the resultant vector,

R=(A)2+(B)2

Here,

A is the magnitude of the vector A , and

B is the magnitude of the vector B .

So, the correct option is (d) which the exact head-tail arrangement of the vectors.

Conclusion:

Thus, the correct option is (d) 4.
