The correct option is C. the Severity, and the complete sentence is: "the force of gravity is the force with which the Earth attracts another object towards itself." In fact, the force of gravity between two objects is given by where G is the gravitational constant, m1 and m2 are the masses of the two objects, r is their separation. If we take the Earth as one of the two objects, then m1 represents the earth's mass, m2 is the mass of the object and r is the distance between the center of the Earth and the object, and F is the force of gravity the Earth attracts objects.
