Which of these statements about force is correct?

A The amount of force required to move an object depends on the frictional forces between the object and its surroundings and must be calculated entirely based on individual situations.
Explaination
In order to move an object initially at rest, a force greater than the coefficient of static friction and the weight of the object must be applied. While levered applications are useful, they are not necessarily the best method of using force. As stated, the amount of force needed to move an object depends on more than just the weight of the object (unless there is no friction involved).
B The amount of force required to move an object does not depend on frictional conditions and cannot and will not exceed the weight of the object in question.
C The amount of force required to move an object depends only on the weight of the object in question.
D Force is best used in levered applications.
