Given below are two statements:
 Assertion (A): The center of mass of an isolated system of particles remains at rest if it is initially at rest. Reason (R): Internal forces acting within a system cannot change the velocity of the center of mass which is proportional to the total momentum of the system.

 1 (A) is True but (R) is False. 2 (A) is False but (R) is True. 3 Both (A) and (R) are True and (R) is the correct explanation of (A). 4 Both (A) and (R) are True but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A).

A block of mass $$m$$ is placed atop another block of mass $$M,$$ and the combination is at rest on a smooth horizontal table. A force $$F_1$$ is applied to $$m$$ and another force $$F_2$$ is applied to $$M,$$ the two acting horizontally and in opposite directions. Consider the following statements about the acceleration $$(a_{cm})$$ of the centre of mass of the system). (Take right as positive)

 A. $$a_{cm}=\dfrac{F_1-F_2}{m+M},$$ if there is no friction acting between  $$m$$ and  $$M$$ B. $$a_{cm}=\dfrac{F_1-F_2}{m+M},$$ if there is static friction between   $$m$$ and  $$M$$ C. $$a_{cm}=\dfrac{F_1-F_2}{m+M},$$ in all situations

Choose the most appropriate option:
 1 only (A) is true. 2 only (B) is true. 3 (C) is true. 4 (A), (B) are true but (C) is false.

 Assertion (A): The centre of mass of a body or a system of bodies is the point that moves as though all the mass were concentrated there and all external forces were applied there. Reason (R): The centre of mass will not move due to mutual attractive forces between two particles.
