A Aadil

As we learnt in:

If External Force = 0 and Velocity of Centre of Mass = 0 -

Then centre of mass remains at rest. Individual components of a system may move and have non zero momentum due to  mutual forces but the net momentum of system remains zero. 

-

 

 

The centre of mass of bodies B and C taken together does not shift as no external force is applied horizontally.

body C

It is an incorrect option.

Option 2)

body B

It is an incorrect option.

Option 3)

depends on height of breaking

It is an incorrect option.
