Whether the weak force can change quark flavor or not.

Explanation

Yes, weak force can change quark flavor. Weak Force interactions can cause change in the fundamental particle into another type of particle (usually referred to as flavor). Weak force can change a strange quark into a charm quark and emit a W boson. These charm and strong are flavors. Thus only a weak force interactions can cause change in the flavor of quarks...
