Answer Key : (b) -

(b)

The two forces along the - direction balance each other.Hence, the resultant force is  along the -direction. Let the point of application of the force be at ( )

(By symmetry, -coordinate will be zero)

For rotational equilibrium:

Alternative method:

Torque will only be produced by the two forces acting along -direction in anticlockwise direction. To balance this torque, we should apply a force  in order to produce a torque in the clockwise direction, which is only possible if we apply a force at a point below the -axis

Then
