Q7.32     Read each statement below carefully, and state, with reasons, if it is true or false;
             (a) During rolling, the force of friction acts in the same direction as the direction of motion of the CM
             of the body.

False. Friction also opposes the relative motion between the contacted surfaces. In the case of rolling, the cm is moving in backward direction thus the frictional force is directed in the forward direction.
